What does it mean to weave your work and your passion together? We are excited to share thoughtful reflections from an EPIP Michigan Chapter summer event - emPOWER: Inspiring the Next Generation of Leaders - that asked those questions.
Held at the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, the event included a keynote and interactive sessions with Shannon Polk. Shannon Polk: lawyer, theologian, advocate, facilitator, and co-founder of EPIP Michigan, posed the question "Does the work you do align with who you are?" - as Mackezie highlights below.
Thank you to Katie Van Dusen and Mackenzie Price for bringing us into the experience!

The following is written by Elizabeth Kidd, Steering Committee Co-Chair of the EPIP-Michigan Chapter, and staff at the Community Foundation for the Holland/Zeeland Area. Moving up on the proverbial career ladder is a frequent topic of conversation among young professionals in any field; the philanthropic/social change sector is certainly no exception. We analyze potential next steps, lament the often limited options for upward mobility, confess our fears that we might be stagnating, and celebrate when we ourselves or our colleagues have opportunities to move up. However as I talked with other participants at the 2013 EPIP National Conference and listened to them describe the work they were doing, I was struck by how woefully inadequate the career ladder metaphor is to capture the many valuable ways we can and do move professionally – particularly in the field of philanthropy.
