Our mission at EPIP is to develop new leaders for foundations and the communities they serve and impact. Our guiding principles focus on building a field that is mult-generational, professional and effective, and helps to bring about a more just, equitable and sustainable society. In fact, EPIP is one the few groups within the foundation field raising questions about generational and talent issues and advocating for multi-generational solutions.
Our movement brings an important leadership perspective to the philanthropic and nonprofit sector. Indeed, many EPIP members have struggled with accessing the information and tools needed to craft our own nonprofit and philanthropic careers, so have a personal understanding of the structural challenges faced by the nonprofit workforce. Generating Change is one way to mobilize our voice for change, rooted in our purpose and values.
