Darren Walker attended the Bilderberg for the first time in 2019. Earlier in his career, Walker worked as a lawyer and investment banker with UBS. He also has worked as manager of deep state-connected foundations funding various initiatives, like the Ford Foundation and Rockefeller Foundation.


Walker began his career in 1986 at the New York elite law firm Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton. In 1988, he joined Union Bank of Switzerland (UBS) and spent seven years in its capital markets division.[1]

In 1995, Walker left the corporation to spend a year volunteering at a school in Harlem. He went on to become the chief operating officer at Abyssinian Development Corporation, a community development organization also located in Harlem.

From 2002-2010, Walker was vice president for foundation initiatives at the Rockefeller Foundation, where he oversaw a wide range of programs in the United States and internationally.[2]

He joined the CIA-linked Ford Foundation in 2010 as vice president for Education, Creativity and Free Expression, one of the foundation's three major program areas. He also oversaw Ford Foundation's regional programming in four offices based in Africa and the Middle East.

Walker stated, in October 2021, that the Ford Foundation will divest investments from fossil fuels. Notably, Walker announced as follows:[3][4][5]

   Going forward, Ford Foundation's endowment will not invest in any fossil-fuel-related industries. With our endowment, our strategy is twofold: First, we commit to not doing harm. Consequences are too great to justify any additional investments in fossil-fuel industries. Second, no less important, we will look for opportunities to invest in enterprises and funds that are fueling new technologies and capabilities, contributing to a renewable sector that is strong, diverse, and varied enough to sustain a green-energy economy.
