About this event

Please join us for a briefing on EPIP's recent report: Dissonance & Disconnects: How entry- and mid-level foundation staff see their futures, their institutions, and their field. The report examines the thoughts and feelings of early- and mid- career practitioners on philanthropy, including participants’ experiences at work, the alignment between their institutions’ practices and their values, and how participants see their futures in the sector.

    During this webinar, we will:

    • Summarize the report's findings
    • Take questions about the report and what it could mean for you and for your organization, and
    • Get your thoughts on how foundations are already acting on these issues and what could be done better.

    Meeting Details:

    • Date: Thursday, September 27
    • Time: 12:00 - 1:00 pm (PT)
    • Cosponsors: Emerging Practitioners in Philanthropy (EPIP)
    • Dial-in information will be provided upon registration
