What a year it's been! Send off 2020 with some much-needed connection and fun for renewed energy and hope in 2021. Hosted by EPIP DC, Boston, NYC, and Philadelphia, this social will bring together philanthropy professionals from multiple geographies to get to know each other, unwind, and try something new!
The evening will kick off at 6:00 with a meet and greet at small virtual tables with fellow philanthropy professionals--you can move from table to table like an in-person social! At 6:20 we will formally welcome everyone followed by 45-minutes of activities in small breakout rooms, including yoga, wine tasting, games, and a State of the Field update from Candid.
Activities are first come, first serve, and you may engage in multiple activities as space allows! More details below.
EPIP chapter hosts are excited to celebrate participants with philanthropy-inspired prizes to wrap up the night. Please note the email you use to register for this event must be used to later access the event platform, Remo.
We are excited to welcome the following special guests to the social!
- Yoga with Yemie Sonuga
- Wine Tasting with Tia Subramanian - This session will focus on wines to pair with holiday meals. Specific wines to purchase in advance of the tasting will be shared separately.
- State of the Field with Candid’s Sarina Dayal - Receive an update on the state of the philanthropic sector and where funding is going as we think about targeting our efforts and funding for 2021
