EPIP STL | November Lunch and Learn

In 2018, on every 4th Tuesday of the month, different members of our EPIP St. Louis community will lead monthly discussion on a particular topic or article. Grab a friend, bring your lunch and come prepared to meet new people and discuss ways to move the sector forward. EPIP St. Louis will provide snacks and dessert. 



Creating Space for Diverse Leadership: The Case for Responsive Philanthropy & Building the Next Generation of Civic Leaders

Join EPIP St. Louis to discuss the need for diverse leadership in the social sector and the role that responsive philanthropy can play in building communities of color. This month Desiree Coleman, Diversity Leader at Wells Fargo Advisors and Founder of Good Multiplier will lead a discussion exploring trends in philanthropy, examining the nonprofit racial leadership gap, and highlighting organizations that are working to address these issues. 

The Philanthropic Institute for Racial Equity reports that in 2014, of the $28 billion in overall giving, only $2 billion or 7.4% was given for people of color.  Likewise, Race to Lead: Confronting the Nonprofit Racial Leadership Gap reports that the percentage of people of color in the executive director/CEO role has remained under 20% for the last 15 years, even as the country becomes more diverse.  These trends have implications for the organizations we support, for the people we intend to help and for the future state of our community.

To be prepared for our conversation, please read the following:
