Sankofa Summer

Join EPIP for 6 weeks of knowledge, wellness, and community.

Sankofa is a West African concept that invites us to reach back to gather the best of what our past has taught us in order to reach our fullest potential as we move forward. Now, during a moment in history in which we are reflecting on, reimagining, and reshaping the world around us, EPIP is proud to introduce Sankofa Summer, a virtual learning series taking place in July and August 2020. 

Join us for events designed to rejuvenate your mind, body, spirit, and connection to the philanthropic community, with a focus on three key themes:

  • Decolonizing Stories by elevating the forgotten histories of giving and philanthropy in communities of color;
  • Disrupting the Status Quo by highlighting those who are pushing forward transformative work in the sector which is rooted in the knowledge and wisdom of communities of color; and
  • Embracing Collective Approaches to Healing by viewing healing as an integral part of self-care to ensure one’s longevity and sustainability to continue in this work.

Webinars in the series feature speakers from The Kresge Foundation, PEAK Grantmaking, Candid, Leeway Foundation, Common Future, and more, and include sessions on Re-defining Free & Safe for Communities of ColorNavigating Entrenched Philanthropic Systems from WithinShifting Power in Philanthropic PracticeWomen of Color Leaders in Philanthropy, and Healing Justice 101.
