    EPIP STL | Future Focused Leadership with Trista Harris

    Becoming a Future-Focused Leader 

    Guest Speaker: Trista Harris
    President, FutureGood 
    Thursday January 23rd, 2020
    4:00 - 6:00pm

    Humans are wired to help each other. The problem is that society’s challenges are becoming more complicated and an increasing rate of change is accelerating those challenges.  It would be easy to become overwhelmed with the 24-hour news cycle of despair and do nothing. What we have to remember is that we create the future by the choices that we make today.

     Join EPIP St. Louis for happy hour at The Pat Connolly Tavern and learn from Trista how to build your day to day practice to create a better future. The first 25 individuals to RSVP will receive a copy of her latest book, FutureGood!

    4:00 - 4:15   | Networking
    4:15 - 4:45   | Presentation: Becoming a Future-Focused Leader, Trista Harris
    4:45 - 5:30   | Questions + Dialogue 
    5:30 - 6:00   | Networking

    EPIP St. Louis will provide appetizers.

    EPIP CO | Leadership Journeys

    EPIP Colorado's Leadership Journeys Luncheon brings together two of Colorado’s philanthropic leaders to share their journey into philanthropy and their path to leadership. Are you curious to know more about leadership within philanthropy? Do you wonder how equity and social justice play a role, or not, in advancing philanthropic efforts in our state? Katie Kramer (President and CEO, Boettcher Foundation) and Carlos Martinez (President and CEO, Latino Community Foundation of Colorado) will give us the inside scoop on how they got where they are today and their insights on philanthropy - the good, the bad, and the ugly.

    Carlos Martinez has been the President/CEO of the Latino Community Foundation of Colorado (LCFC) since 2014. Prior to that, Carlos held various executive positions and led the transformation of several non-profit organizations in Colorado, California and Massachusetts and has worked in philanthropy at the executive level.

    Katie Kramer has been the CEO of the Boettcher Foundation since 2017. She has come full circle with the foundation, from being selected as a Boettcher Scholar in 1993 to having served in various roles since joining the organization in 1997, including 15 years as vice president and assistant executive director.

    Come learn more about these two dynamic leaders and their honest perspectives on philanthropy in Colorado. Tickets are $5.00 and will help cover the cost of a simple and filling lunch.

    You do not need to be an EPIP member to attend! We welcome anyone from the philanthropic community to join us. 

    Room location and parking: We will be in the Training Center on the 1st floor. Visitor parking is available on the 4th level of the parking garage on the south side of the building. Accessible parking is available on the surface lot on the south side of the building.
