2018 Q2 Corporate Luncheon

12:00pm to 1:30pm
PDT
Philanthropy Northwest

**Please note NEW date**

Philanthropy Northwest is thrilled to be continuing our Corporate Member Luncheons in 2018 and we hope that you will join us for a great conversation around leadership and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI).

Maya Sandifor from the Learning Network team will facilitate our discussion on what we mean when we say Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and share the Equity Strategy Tool, a six step process that moves through setting the outcome to learning and evaluating impact. We hope that you will bring stories and examples of how you have embedded DEI practices in your work. Specifically, we ask that you consider this question for our discussion: What is your leadership "edge" when it comes to moving DEI in your organizations?

Please join us for lunch and conversation:

Date:              Thursday, June 28 from 12-1:30 p.m.***
Location:      Philanthropy Northwest offices
                      2101 4th Ave., Suite 650 Seattle, WA 98121

We look forward to a great conversation!

*Lunch will be provided
