    EPIP Bay Area | Media Club: Money as Medicine

    Join EPIP Bay Area for our second media club dedicated to learning about and from indigenous communities on how philanthropic professionals can engage, be in solidarity with, and fund Native led work in community. 

    This virtual event on July 7 at 12:00pm PT will feature a conversation with John Okhiulu, Tom Ford Fellow in Philanthropy at the Decolonizing Wealth Project. We’ll be discussing the “Money as Medicine” framework, the healing power of arts /culture community practices, and ways to leverage philanthropy in order to  amplify, sustain, and strengthen Native led organizations for the foreseeable future.

    Our aspirations for this media club series are to facilitate an accessible, abundant, and brave learning space for us to learn and develop our philanthropic practice in honor of the Indigenous sovereignty work happening all around us. 

    Please check out the following article and podcasts in preparation for our time together:

    Compass Point - Managing Up↑ Without Shutting Down↓ (Open to the Public)

    Whether you're working in-person, fully remote, or adapting to hybrid arrangements, chances are you're having to "manage up" on the daily. EPIP members persistently ask for support in developing this skill, and we are here to deliver.

    Join EPIP and CompassPoint on July 25 from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. PT for a highly interactive workshop on how to “manage up” without shutting down. Attendees will build self-advocacy and interpersonal leadership skills to feel empowered navigating positional power dynamics at work while advancing equity.

    What to Expect:

    This is an interactive workshop, not a webinar! Our trainings come to life with your perspective, wisdom, and questions. There will be interactive exercises, small and large group discussions, and invitations to read out loud. Please show up ready to participate via video, audio, and chat. If your personal circumstances prevent this, we will adjust as needed.

    We value your participation and want you to get the most out of our time together. 

    Attendees will:

    • Explore ways to discern the appropriate situations to “manage up”
    • Develop a personal set of principles for giving and receiving feedback across positional power
    • Identify ways to create space to advocate for yourself and others 
    • Explore how approaches to conflict are often rooted in dominant cultural values and start a shift toward new, more generative approaches
    • Examine how your own identity, culture, and relationship to power inform your capacity to manage up

    Attendees will not:

    • Resolve all your work conflicts in 2 hours
    • Solve harmful systems and governance structures within your organization
    • Find easy solutions or quick fixes for your specific situations

    This event is open to all philanthropic practitioners, especially those that are early- or mid-career.

    People of Color Network Summer 2022 Gathering

    Even before the pandemic, we know from our members that striking balance between work and life demands was hard fought. Now, even Beyoncé is recognizing that the work grind is just too much, even when we are mission driven. At this gathering of the People of Color Network, join your peers for 90 minutes devoted to managing stress and finding small opportunities for healing while striving for elusive "work/life balance". 

    The People of Color Network (PCN) is a professional development and peer support network for EPIP members who identify as people of color. The PCN began in 2012 to support early- and mid-career people of color in philanthropy in attending sector conferences. Since then, it has evolved to involve workshops and networking opportunities. The PCN uses the EPIP Inclusive Leadership Framework as a basis for skill-building and focus. 

    EPIP Communities of Practice are designed for EPIP members. Not a member yet? Visit our membership page to learn more and join this community of equity-minded changemakers.
