Emerging Practitioners in Philanthropy (EPIP) is seeking thoughtful, inclusive, and talented leaders to join our Advisory Board!
EPIP strives for a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive sector that innovates with intention, takes risks, and leads more boldly so that we may bring resources to communities and organizations to advance equity. EPIP’s Advisory Board plays a pivotal role in reaching those goals.
The Advisory Board is also an opportunity for board members to serve our community while further developing their own leadership, skills, and networks. We are seeking dedicated leaders who believe in our mission and our work. Specifically, we are seeking values-aligned leaders who meet some or all of the following criteria:
- Demonstrated commitment to equity, social justice, and excellence in philanthropy (required);
- Knowledge of philanthropy, non-profits, community organizing, and/or equity work; and
- Skill in one or more of the following: non-profit governance, finance and accounting, law, fundraising, human resources, communications, and/or policy/advocacy.
Because of the diversity of EPIP’s membership, we look for a range of experience in philanthropy and in the working world. Additionally, EPIP seeks to maintain a highly diverse board and is intentionally seeking a diverse candidate pool in terms of demographics, life experience, geography, and expertise.
Members of the Advisory Board serve two-year terms, with the option to serve no more than three consecutive terms. Additionally, members of the board are expected to participate in four board meetings per year, held on a quarterly basis. In 2021, all meetings will be virtual. Advisory Board members are also expected to serve on a committee and participate in our national conference (Summer 2021).
