Vision and Voice: The Role of Leadership and Dialogue in Advancing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Wed, October 22, 2014, 10:00am PDT

The Forum of Regional Associations of Grantmakers is pleased to co-sponsor a new webinar series in partnership with the D5 Coalition, a five-year effort to advance philanthropy’s diversity, equity and inclusiveness. Diversity, equity and inclusion affect every dimension of the work carried out by philanthropic organizations to promote the common good. This series is designed to support regional associations and their members with webinars tailored to each.

In this session, Philanthropy Northwest will share its findings from a research study that explored the complex factors and opportunities that foundation leaders navigate to advance diversity, equity and inclusion in their foundations. Foundation executives that participated in a peer learning cohort as part of this study will reflect on their experiences and share their own lessons learned for colleagues and the field.

To register, please email Hafizah Omar at the D5 Coalition.
