EPIP LA is thrilled to announce that it is accepting applications for its tenth year of the Mentorship Program. Through its Mentorship Program, EPIP LA aims to provide participants with the tools needed to develop and maintain meaningful connections with experienced leaders and their peers.
The EPIP LA Mentorship program connects emerging leaders in the philanthropic field with a seasoned leader to serve as a mentor and like-minded peers to support them on their journey.
Participants meet to discuss their individual professional interests and brainstorm potential matches. The Steering Committee assists in matching each participant with a mentor in the field who is available to meet on a regular basis for the year (approximately four meetings total). On alternate months, the cohort of mentees meets to discuss their professional challenges, progress on personal goals, and share learning from their mentor relationships. Participants need to be available at least once a month for the duration of the program.
Please complete this form to apply for the 2023 Mentorship Program cohort. Applications are due by Friday, December 16, 2022. Applicants must be available to participate in an evening group interview during the second week of January (tentatively January 14th) and willing to commit to the full year of the program if selected.Read more

Around this time last year, we celebrated EPIP’s 20th anniversary through our virtual conference, “R/evolution.” We reflected with our members (past and present) about how far we’ve come, we challenged the current norms of our sector and began to reimagine what the next 20 years of changemaking could entail. In our rapidly changing world, our sector needs more equity-minded leaders serving at all levels and functions within philanthropic institutions, because every choice made within philanthropy is an opportunity for equity to emerge. EPIP equips our members with human-centered leadership skills to advance more equitable philanthropic practice and foster inclusive work environments. Looking back at our history, EPIP has consistently evolved to meet the changing needs of early and mid-career philanthropic professionals, and I am proud of how much we’ve grown.
Looking ahead, EPIP is in a period of expansion to enhance the ways we support and amplify the needs, experiences, and leadership of our members.Read more
