Didn’t make it to the CHANGE Philanthropy UNITY Summit? That’s ok! Join us on December 3rd to talk about the highlights and key takeaways from the UNITY Summit. We’ll start with an informal panel of attendees who can share what they’ve learned and answer questions. We’ll also spend some time reflecting on EPIP LA’s programming in 2019 and brainstorming for next year.
This workshop is an opportunity to strengthen your ability to be an agent of interpersonal, organizational, and systemic change - showing up as a "co-conspirator" in the work of racial justice. This highly interactive session will give participants a hands-on experience to explore their experience of whiteness, gain tools for having difficult conversations, and begin to identify and tackle institutional and systemic racism in their workplace and communities.
Though the primary audience for this workshop is white people, people of color interested in being with white people on this journey are welcome.
The workshop will be facilitated by Christine Margiotta, Executive Director of Social Venture Partners (SVP). In addition to their core program, the Systems Change Accelerator, SVP provides facilitation, training, and consulting to build a community of nonprofits, foundations, and individuals committed to creating a more just Los Angeles.
Come join fellow Los Angeles EPIPers and friends for an evening adventure in Griffith Park!
We will hike together by the light of the moon, connecting with peers while enjoying amazing views of the city. Our journey will be about 3 miles round trip with around 500 feet of elevation gain. Bring plenty of warm layers, sturdy shoes, water, and a flashlight (just in case). We also encourage you to come ready with an ask or question for the group, a reflection on 2019, or an intention for 2020.
Meet at 7:30pm at the south entrance of the Merry Go Round Parking Lot #1. This lot is on the east side of Griffith Park off of Crystal Springs Drive (click here for map).
We look forward to seeing you there!
