A Look Ahead to EPIP 2024: Reconnect, Revive and Rise

As spring arrives, we’re getting excited to be even closer to welcoming our community to New Orleans for EPIP 2024: Reconnect, Revive and Rise! Registration is open, you’ve met our conference planning committee, and we’ve now released our full conference agenda. Navigate to the "agenda" tab to see what we have in store in New Orleans and virtually. We'll be continuing to add more great content and speakers in the coming weeks, so stay tuned for even more incredible learning and connection opportunities. 

EPIP 2024 isn’t your average professional conference: we know that the best learning happens when you feel connected and in community, when your full humanity is affirmed, and when you’re able to bring your complete identity to your professional spaces. 

This is a pro-Black, pro-queer, pro-joy space that invites you to bring your best and brightest thinking (and outfits), and grow among like-minded peers who will stretch your vision, skills, and sense of possibility for justice through your work in the philanthropic sector. We are here to be the best we can be, because we know philanthropy has a huge responsibility to steward resources to movements, back to community, and shift power. Regardless of your role and regardless of your positional power, there is a place for you at EPIP: where leaders never stop emerging, where we recognize connection is just as important as content, and where arts and culture are vital to our time together.

 Some highlights of EPIP 2024 include:

  • Healing spaces - since 2016, EPIP has featured identity-based healing spaces with the guidance of Erika Totten at Unchained Visioning. We are thrilled to have Erika’s gifted team of healers join us in New Orleans for facilitated spaces of healing for Black folks, non-Black people of color, and white-identifying conference attendees.
  • Meaningful programming - attendees will be able to attend the following main-stage plenaries whether in-person or joining us virtually: Black and Indigenous Solidarity in New Orleans; Philanthropy Won’t Break my Soul; Harnessing Philanthropic Courage for an Uncertain Future. You’ll also have a selection of amazing breakout sessions on topics including trust based philanthropy, landback and reparations, what AI means for the future of equitable philanthropy, prioritizing healing and rest, and much more! 
  • Connection over content - with opportunities to connect with your peers via region and role, and affinity spaces hosted by our peers at Hispanics in Philanthropy and Funders for LGBTQ Issues, there are ample opportunities to build and sustain connections that will carry you through your philanthropic career.
  • Engaging extras - we’ll celebrate all that New Orleans has to offer with a welcome reception at the New Orleans African American Museum in the historic Tremé neighborhood, a night market featuring local makers and artisans brought right to our hotel, and an opportunity to support a local Black-owned community bookseller through the EPIP Café.

We can’t wait to connect with all of you June 3-5! Register today to save your spot, space is limited
