    EPIP Michigan Spring Workshop

    EPIP Michigan chapter is hosting a spring programming workshop on April 27 from 10:00 am – 3:00 pm at the Flint Farmers Market in Flint, Michigan. We have planned an interactive day, featuring presenters who will address the many aspects of applying an equity lens for our work in philanthropy. Our focus of this workshop is intersectionality, and we will explore ways in which we can build and leverage our own personal equity principles in our work; hear from leaders in the field about how they apply an equity lens; and understand how the various lenses can inform personal leadership growth and career advancement.

    This will be a great opportunity to meet and network with other EPIP Michigan members and have meaningful discussions about issues that matter to us most. We also hope that this is a safe space for us to create tangible action items that we can take back to our workplaces to implement.

    LEARNING GOALS:

    1. Participants will learn basic language and definitions related to intersectionality and social identities.
    2. Applying an intersectional lens, participants will examine how their social identities and how the social identities of others influence how we "show up" in philanthropy.
    3. Participants will understand the impacts of positive and negative stereotypes of various intersectional identities in the workplace.
    4. Participants will learn about the role of intersectionality in decision making, relationship building, and working toward equitable outcomes in philanthropy, with a place-based focus on Flint, MI.

    This event wouldn’t be possible with the support of Council of Michigan Foundations who generously sponsored the space for EPIP to gather and discuss important issues facing our sector.

    We look forward to your participation!
