As we prepare for the 2021 EPIP National Conference, we're thrilled to be working with a group of dedicated and passionate leaders who are helping to shape the conference experience. The 29 members of the 2021 Conference Committee hail from organizations across the country and throughout the sector. We thank them for bringing their emergent leadership, lived experiences, and commitment to equity and justice to our conference planning process.

Want to get to know the conference committee a little better? In the spirit of EPIP's 20th Anniversary, EPIP 20@21: Re/Imagine, we asked what reimagining philanthropy meant to them.
Reimagining is Renewing
"A space that genuinely welcomes, values, and uplifts the voices of BIPOC communities and those whose passion, calling, and journey brings them to the sector."
"A catalyst for healing and justice - not investments in programs and direct services, but in relationship, communities, and generational thriving."
Reimagining is Recentering
"Centering underserved youth and communities in the way we reimagine our public systems and practices."
"Shifting power & resources and sharing leadership with girls, women, and communities of color."
Reimagining is R/evolution
"Creating a just society that addresses the inequalities which created philanthropy."
"Intentionally dismantling the systems that require philanthropy."
"Redistributing power to people on the ground."
