National Center for Family Philanthropy’s (NCFP) Family Philanthropy Racial Justice Symposium is a two-day virtual learning opportunity for family foundation board members, CEOs, senior staff, and next-generation family members seeking to deepen their knowledge around racial equity frameworks and practices. Leverage Philanthropic Partners, ABFE, Resource Generation and other experts in this space will lead and facilitate multiple program sessions.

Day one will introduce fundamental topics, provide the necessary grounding for the conversations and discuss foundational strategies. On day two, attendees will workshop their challenges, consider case studies and determine next steps for their personal and professional journeys in pursuit of racial justice. Participants will hear from experts in the field while connecting in small groups with fellow peers at various stages of their learning. This symposium is an opportunity for the family philanthropy community to dive deep into a range of racial equity topics such as:

  • Navigating family conflict about racial equity issues
  • Committing to racial equity and justice as individuals and a collective
  • Adopting principles and practices across your management and operations
  • Diversifying your governance structure
  • Sharing power and decision-making authority with community
  • Discussing what reparations means in the context of family philanthropy
  • Adjusting grantmaking strategies to pursue transformative change
  • Adopting listening practices and participatory grantmaking strategies
  • … and more
