Henriët Hendriks provides evaluation, learning leadership, and support for the Minneapolis Foundation’s grant programs and strategic framework. She aims to bring in new and creative evaluation approaches that center equity, community voice, and collaborative learning. Before joining the Foundation, Henriët co-directed a statewide initiative at the Humphrey School of Public Affairs to support innovative, multigenerational approaches in human services. Henriët also has extensive experience in state government, having worked as a management consultant with Minnesota Management and Budget (MMB) and a non-partisan fiscal analyst at the Minnesota House of Representatives. Henriët holds a Ph.D. in political science from the University of Minnesota and a B.A. in American Studies from the University of Amsterdam in the Netherlands. In her free time, she enjoys cooking elaborate dinners with friends, hiking and biking with her husband and two dogs, and listening to—and occasionally making—bluegrass music.
