About this event

At Philanthropy Northwest, we believe supporting Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) professionals in the philanthropic sector is an essential part of living into our commitment to racial equity. 

To support this effort, we are working with skilled facilitators to design a series of three BIPOC Folks in Philanthropy Group sessions built for BIPOC, philanthropic leaders to engage in leadership development and explore topics of self and community care, generative conflict and leading with your values.

Navigating in our purpose as BIPOC professionals can be challenging in the philanthropic sector. Our second session will provide intentional space for BIPOC leaders to reflect on questions like "what are my values?" and "how do I lead in a way that honors those values?" while considering the nuances that come with our experiences as BIPOC folks. Participants will come away with practices and tools to keep us accountable to our values and purpose.

About The Series


This three-session series is designed to be nurturing spaces that acknowledge and tend to the unique challenges, experiences and perspectives of BIPOC professionals in the philanthropic sector.

Through these virtual spaces, we hope participants will:

  • Build relationships and network with other BIPOC professionals in philanthropy.
  • Get nurtured support through our relational cohort style. Our facilitators will help participants explore relevant BIPOC-centered equity topics and discover what is necessary for individual and collective renewing, as well as how to prepare for the future as BIPOC leaders working in philanthropy. 
  • Strengthen their equity analysis skills by engaging in shared learning and dialogue. Participants will bolster both their individual and collective analysis around equity and learn how to sustainably advance their work within the philanthropic sector.

Register for session one on Self and Community Healing and session three on Generative Conflict.
