This is a meeting about philanthropic approaches to racial justice and racial equity. This will be a space to learn from one another, starting with a panel of your peers sharing what their foundations have always been doing; are newly doing; or are thinking about doing in an effort to working towards racial justice and equity. Panelists will represent a continuum of strategies and approaches to this work.
Speakers that will be sharing their foundation's perspectives include Dara Gannon, Director of Programs and Donor Services at the Cape Cod Foundation, Sergio Marin Luna, Program Officer at the Hyams Foundation, and Amy Carlin and Gabriella Mora from the Krupp Family Foundation.
Later, in break out groups, you’ll respond to the key discussion question of how you, as mid to senior level program staff, can lead around racial justice and equity and advocate for action within your organization and/or externally to your key stakeholders.
