Join us, Thursday November 29th, for a Professional Development Breakfast at Philanthropy Network Greater Philadelphia. The new Professional Development Breakfast series offers the opportunity to learn about different aspects of Philanthropy from Senior Staff. Topics will vary. Whether discussing current trends or lessons learned in Philanthropy, there will always be a keen focus on how emerging leaders in Philanthropy can engage and grow. We look forward to seeing you there.
