A Workshop Series for Philanthropic Leaders & Trustees
Co-hosted by Arizona Community Foundation, Arizona Grantmakers Forum,
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 hosted a highly interactive workshop series where we examined the causes of and barriers to challenging systemic oppression and identified strategies to toward accomplishing meaningful social transformation. Facilitated by Luke Black of Marigold Consulting, this three-part series was 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.
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?
