    EPIP CO | Let's Talk About Class: Understanding Class Cultures to Dismantle Organizational Classism

    EPIP Colorado is excited to partner with Chinook Fund for this virtual workshop to deepen our learning and skills to advance inclusion and social justice in our professional and personal lives. Class backgrounds and class cultures can strongly shape our worldview and ability to build relationships or collaborate with others across class lines. We see this in power dynamics between a wealthy board member and the nonprofit they support, how middle-class nonprofit professionals reach out to poor and low-income communities, and how we tend to imagine fundraising for our work. By honestly addressing and working to dismantle classism within our organizations, we can better serve our communities and foster trust within diverse coalitions organizing for change.

    This workshop will introduce participants to frameworks for naming, identifying, and disrupting classist practices within their organizations, and provide resources and community-building tips to use with staff, board, clients, and partners. The session will be co-led by Juliette Lee, Program Director at Chinook Fund, and EPIP Colorado Steering Committee member Erik Ortiz (who is also Co-chair of the Chinook Fund Board of Directors). 

    Space is limited and registration has closed.

    Thank you to the Colorado Health Foundation for sponsoring this training!

    End of Year Social

    What a year it's been! Send off 2020 with some much-needed connection and fun for renewed energy and hope in 2021. Hosted by EPIP DC, Boston, NYC, and Philadelphia, this social will bring together philanthropy professionals from multiple geographies to get to know each other, unwind, and try something new! 

    The evening will kick off at 6:00 with a meet and greet at small virtual tables with fellow philanthropy professionals--you can move from table to table like an in-person social! At 6:20 we will formally welcome everyone followed by 45-minutes of activities in small breakout rooms, including yoga, wine tasting, games, and a State of the Field update from Candid. 

    Activities are first come, first serve, and you may engage in multiple activities as space allows! More details below.

    EPIP chapter hosts are excited to celebrate participants with philanthropy-inspired prizes to wrap up the night. Please note the email you use to register for this event must be used to later access the event platform, Remo. 

    We are excited to welcome the following special guests to the social!

    1. Yoga with Yemie Sonuga
    2. Wine Tasting with Tia Subramanian - This session will focus on wines to pair with holiday meals. Specific wines to purchase in advance of the tasting will be shared separately. 
    3. State of the Field with Candid’s Sarina Dayal - Receive an update on the state of the philanthropic sector and where funding is going as we think about targeting our efforts and funding for 2021

    EPIP Seattle | Virtual Holiday Party: A Night of Magic & Mind-Reading!

    Instead of getting together for our annual holiday party, we're bringing the party to you! Join EPIP Seattle for an evening of magic and mind-reading. If you're able, join us at 4pm for a chance to connect as a chapter, and reflect on this year. At 5pm the magic show begins! 

    Here's what our magician has shared:

    Suspend your disbelief and watch closely as your screen is transformed into your own personal theatre; Here you will take part in magic and mind-reading demonstrations that are done with everyday objects you can find in your own home.

    First, Ill give you a brief history and in-depth look into the art of magic highlighting some of the famous magicians that have paved the way for modern conjurors.


    Next, sit back and relax as I perform some of my favorite classic and modern effects including visual illusions and interactive Mental demonstrations and a Impossible finale that you will have to see to believe.
