    Webinar: Transformational Philanthropy through Giving Circles

    Giving Circles were created to override the traditional power dynamics of philanthropy and put giving in new hands. They continue to be a powerful model for making change in transformational ways. Join us for a webinar that explores the community roots of Giving Circles, diverse examples of powerful giving circles making real positive impact and learn how to start or lead your own. No matter your job or experience, get tools to start, sustain and expand values-aligned giving with your friends, family or community. Get in the driver's seat of change with the empowered model of Giving Circle philanthropy.

    Joelle Asaro Berman 

    Joelle believes deeply in the power of connecting to our identities, our visions, and our communities. She's worked in the nonprofit space for more than 10 years, leading communications, marketing, and strategy efforts at multiple organizations. She currently serves as the program director for Amplifier, an exciting new program of the Natan Fund that helps people create giving circles inspired by Jewish values -- groups who pool their charitable donations and decide together how to give them away. In addition to building communities around giving, Joelle also helps bring people together around food through her community-supported agriculture project in Brooklyn, the Brooklyn Bridge CSA, and is known to start infectious dance parties, which is, incidentally, another great tool in community building.

    Webinar: Implicit Bias in Grantmaking

    How Does Implicit Bias Influence Philanthropic Effectiveness?

    How well do you know your subconscious? Why does it matter? Proven science tells us that our conscious commitments to fairness and equality can be undermined by subconscious assumptions we may not even be aware of.

    Join this interactive session with Jeanné Isler, Field Director at the National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy; Rachel Godsill, Director of Research at the Perception Institute and Crystal Echo Hawk, President & CEO of Echo Hawk Consulting and a member of the Pawnee Nation of Oklahoma, to explore the definitions of implicit bias, its effect on all of us as individuals, and its influence on the decisions and trends in our philanthropic institutions.
