A Workshop Series for Philanthropic Leaders & Trustees
Co-hosted by Arizona Community Foundation, Arizona Grantmakers Forum,
Registration is required. The deadline to register is Thursday, March 22.
The sense that the United States is changing is more than a feeling. Within the next few decades, no single racial or ethnic population will be the majority in the U.S., based on recent findings from the Pew Research Center. As we look to a more diverse future, what role will the philanthropic community play to ensure equitable and inclusive treatment for all, regardless of race, gender or socioeconomic status?
Arizona Grantmakers Forum’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Affinity Group invites you to participate in a highly interactive workshop series where we will examine the causes of and barriers to challenging systemic oppression and identify strategies to accomplish meaningful social transformation. Facilitated by Luke Black of Marigold Consulting, this three-part series is designed for philanthropy CEOs, senior-level executives and trustees who are ready to move beyond fear and discomfort and invoke the courage to change the reality of racial, gender and socioeconomic inequity in Arizona.
At the end of the series, participants will be equipped to lead philanthropic efforts to support and participate in the transformation of the state toward justice and equity.
Space is limited to 20 participants with a maximum of two individuals from a member organization. To provide the most meaningful learning experience, participants are expected to attend all three workshops and schedule one-on-one conversations with the facilitator. AGF will assist participants with scheduling one-on-ones.
To encourage open dialogue about sensitive subjects, this series will not be available via teleconference, live stream or video recording.
Session One: How Did We Get Here?/No Win Options
Session Two: Centering the Margins/Strategies for Transformation
Session Three: What’s Our Plan?
