    EPIP DC | Rallying In This Moment

    In just a few weeks, the new presidential administration has advanced policies that stand in opposition to EPIP DC’s core values of social justice and equity. The work required of us in this moment can be daunting and depleting.

    Our network represents the most diverse group of emerging leaders in the region’s philanthropic sector. As we grapple with calls for responsiveness and resistance, community is a key tool for self-care and combatting burnout. EPIP DC invites all new and returning members to decompress, bond, and rally. Join a casual happy hour discussion featuring local organizers as we support each other and explore avenues to engage locally. Food will be provided!

    Speakers
    • Jess Brown, Showing Up for Racial Justice DC (SURJ DC)

    • Maya Vizvary, Collective Action for Safe Spaces (CASS)

    • Caitlin Duffy (NCRP) & Tyler Nickerson (Solutions Project), Hosts and Moderators

    EPIP NY | Coaching Change: Creating a Playbook for Pursuing Your Ideas at Work

    Whether you’ve been contemplating big systemic change or how your internal departments can communicate better, it seems to be an occupational hazard to continuously assess how we can improve our current workplace and the philanthropic community we are engaged with.

This workshop will provide you with a framework to organize your thinking around an issue as well as peer-coaching to spark your creative thinking and get you started.

    We look forward to collectively laying the ground work for thinking outside the box and making philanthropy even more reflective of the communities we want to live and thrive in.

     This workshop will be led by EPIP-NY Steering Committee members:

    •         Shawn Durbin, Grants User Support Specialist, Open Society Foundations
