The group offers opportunities for peer networking, professional development and social interaction. EPIP-DC has planned a variety of networking, professional development and educational events in 2012, and will continue to do so in 2013. Recently, EPIP DC has organized Social Impact salons and Emerging Leader salons featuring leaders in the philanthropic community in the DC area. EPIP DC has also sponsored networking happy hours and lunches to provide a forum for professionals to connect to one another.
