    EPIP STL | August Lunch & Learn

    In 2018, on every 4th Tuesday of the month, different members of our EPIP St. Louis community lead monthly discussion on a particular topic or article. Grab a friend and come prepared to meet new people and discuss ways to move the sector forward.
    ** Note: Bring your lunch, EPIP St. Louis will provide fruit and desert **


    EPIP St. Louis is celebrating it's one year anniversary this August! It has been an amazing ride and we're thankful to be in community with all of you. We remain committed to cultivate a diverse field of philanthropic practitioners equipped with the knowledge, skills, and resources necessary to create a thriving, socially just, and racially equitable St. Louis. Join us at this month's lunch & learn to reflect on where we've been and dream together about where we are heading. As we dream together, members from our EPIP community will reflect on learnings from the EPIP National Conference.

    On July 30th - August 1st over 200 EPIPers from across the country came together in Detroit, MI for EPIP's National Conference. "The Road Ahead: Leadership in Uncertain Times" focused on the urgency of the philanthropic sector to remain responsive in the face of such cultural, political, and economic division. This month's lunch and learn will highlight key take-aways including learnings from other chapters and a look at what is happening nationally among our network from the handful of EPIP StLouis members that attended the conference. 

     "The road to equity is a long one, but it’s best traveled in the company of friends, supporters, and partners in this work."

    EPIP LA | Post-Conference Conversation on the State of the Sector

    Didn't make it to the EPIP Conference in Detroit?  That's ok!

    Join us on August 28th to talk about the highlights and key takeaways from the EPIP National Conference in Detroit. We’ll start with an informal panel of attendees who can share what they’ve learned and answer questions. We’ll also spend some time talking about EPIP’s new report, Dissonance & Disconnects: How entry and mid-level foundation staff see their futures, their institutions, and their field. The evening will conclude with a brainstorming session as we start to think about how LA fits into this national conversation and the role that EPIP LA can play with its programming.

    In advance of the event, please take some time to review EPIP’s report, Dissonance & Disconnects. It was released following a survey to better understand the workplace experiences of EPIP members and their peers. The report focuses on themes including participants’ experiences at work, the alignment between their institutions’ practices and their values, and how participants see their futures in the sector. The results may surprise you.


       


    Dinner will be provided.

    EPIP Bay Area | Foundations & Advocacy 101

    Screen_Shot_2018-08-06_at_10.32.17_AM.png

    Do you think your foundation’s nonprofit status prevents you from supporting grantees’ public policy advocacy? Do you think your public or private foundation must stay away from advocating for community change? Think again! In this workshop, you'll learn the basics of nonprofit advocacy, as well as your foundation’s rights to maximize advocacy impact at the local, state, and even national level.

    Please join the Emerging Practitioners in Philanthropy Bay Area Chapter and Alliance for Justice's Bolder Advocacy initiative for a training on grantee rights and responsibilities for engaging in advocacy, plus advocacy rights and responsibilities for both public and private foundations.

    Light refreshments will be served. Join us for an off-site happy hour networking opportunity after the workshop!

    Nine girls. Nine stories of courage.

    Our film, Girl Rising, spotlights the unforgettable stories of girls living in the developing world, striving beyond circumstance and overcoming nearly insurmountable odds to achieve their dreams.

    Directed by Academy Award Nominee, Richard E. Robbins, written by acclaimed female writers, and voiced by acclaimed actresses including Meryl Streep, Kerry Washington, Anne Hathaway and more, Girl Rising proves that one girl with courage is a revolution.


    Join EPIP DC throughout the year as we screen three groundbreaking documentaries – Before the Flood, 13th and Girl Rising. This three-part series explores themes that challenge systems of power, including environmental justice, discrimination and criminal justice reform, and girls’ education and empowerment. We hope these screenings will encourage us to lean into the uncomfortable and provide us with an opportunity to discuss issues we all care about.

    • Each film will start promptly at 6:10 pm and will be followed by open dialogue.
    • Light refreshments will be provided.

    Bring a friend or colleague to join for an evening of film and conversation.

    *NOTE: Girl Rising is our last scheduled screening for the year. If you are interested in hosting your own screening, please contact dc@epip.org.
