    EPIP Bay Area | Article Club: Nonprofit Racial Leadership Gap

    Screen_Shot_2017-08-13_at_11.39.49_PM.pngJoin EPIP Bay Area for a drink (on us!) and discussion at on the nonprofit racial leadership gap, framed by Building Movement Project's recently published report, Race to Lead, and D5 Coalition's study on career pathways of professionals of color in philanthropy.

    The percentage of people of color in nonprofit executive director roles has remained under 20% for the past decade. To increase the number of people of color leading nonprofits, the sector needs a new narrative about the problem and new strategies to address it. Nonprofits have to transfer the responsibility for the racial leadership gap from those who are targeted by it (aspiring leaders of color), to those governing organizations.

    Although we encourage you to read the full reports (and share them with your colleagues!), please read the Executive Summaries before this meetup. This will not be a space to debate the value of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) in the social sector, but rather a space for small group discussion and peer learning.

    Resources and Further Reading

    TBA


    Our quarterly Article Clubs are loosely facilitated happy hours where attendees can network and discuss articles that focus on a current—and ideally, controversial—trend or hot topic in philanthropy. Have suggestions for future topics/articles? Email us at bayarea@epip.org!

    EPIP DC Philanthropy Disruptors: Expanding How We Think of Giving

    While traditional philanthropy continues to have a strong presence in our country, there are an increasing number of unique giving vehicles. Most notably, Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook opted to create an LLC instead of a formalized family foundation which allows him to have more creative control over his giving. Is there more than one way to be philanthropic? Can new and diverse models of giving help philanthropy be more inclusive? Join EPIP DC for a panel and discussion on new giving models. The conversation will be moderated by Bob Grimm of the Do Good Institute and will feature Evan Lutz of Hungry Harvest and Michelle Gilliard of Venture Philanthropy Partners.

    Managing Race and Power From Your Seat - Part 1

    Race and power are issues that affect all of us, all the time. Many of our organizations are at different places; some are only now getting past the case-making on race, and some have made explicit commitments to uplifting equity in its many different forms. With that comes the implementation – how can we stay true to commitments, or to ourselves if our organizations aren’t there, and keep equity at the helm of everything our organization does?

    Given the deep importance of this topic, EPIP DC is launching a two part event series to both provide inspiration to emerging leaders as they navigate these tough dynamics and also allow for small discussions to dive deep into potential solutions.

    First, join us on Tuesday, October 3, for an interactive discussion with Storme Gray, Keisha Leverette, and Chante Coleman to talk about how EPIP’ers can move equity-related issues through their organizations. This conversation will hopefully inspire you to act and build your skills in this work.

    Then on Friday, October 6, taking what we learned earlier in the week, we’ll continue the conversation over lunch with small group peer coaching on issues you face in the workplace. Please register here for Part 2.

    Breakfast will be provided.

    Managing Race and Power From Your Seat - Part 2

    As Part 2 of an event series around managing race and power from your seat, EPIP DC members are invited to join a brown bag lunch for peer coaching and small group discussion around issues you face at work. This event will provide a safe space for members to share their successes and challenges in moving an equity agenda at their organization. We ask that you bring an open mind and heart to this discussion and be ready to support each other in this important work. 

    This session will be held from 12:00 - 1:00 pm on Friday, October 6. Please bring your lunch and a topic to discuss!
