EPIP DC | Resource Flow Working Group Pilot

Posted on June 07, 2021
“We envision a world where systems, cultures and individuals 
support the wellbeing and self-determination of all people and the planet,  
with care for past, present, and future life.”
- Miki Kashtan
EPIP DC in partnership with Communities in Transition (CIT) are inviting you to co-create and pilot with us a Resource Flow Working Group (RFWG).

What if the most powerful step you could take towards social change lies within your organization? Amidst the roaring global call for greater diversity, equity, and inclusion, the tides of philanthropy are turning towards greater trust, flexibility, and participation. Those who are seizing the moment are finding far too often that our institutions are stuck, stuck in old mindsets, antiquated practices and outdated policies. Proposing change can get sticky and even be risky.

EPIP DC | Aspire For Better: "Back To Normal" Is A Terrible Goal

Posted on April 28, 2020

We are living in unprecedented times. To claim anything else would be to naively dismiss our new reality; however, to believe that we cannot come out of this pandemic stronger than before would be to allow fear and anxiety to shroud the great opportunity before us.

We are being exposed. The ugly truths that our nation has tried to hide are coming to light and, in the light, we can diagnose problems by name and collectively work towards their cure. We now see that our healthcare system is inadequate, that our country is too slow to respond to disasters, that we undervalue the workers who keep our country running, and that racial minorities have to inequitably deal with the consequences.

EPIP DC Mentorship Program 2018-2019

Posted on July 09, 2018

EPIP DC is proud to pilot a new mentorship program to help cultivate strategic, supportive relationships for professional and leadership development in our local network and philanthropic community.

Inspired by EPIP National’s strategic framework and the mentorship programs hosted by EPIP Boston and EPIP LA, the DC chapter sees this as an opportunity to support our members in their internal and external advocacy and our shared commitment to equity and social justice in philanthropy.

The inaugural 2018-2019 cohort includes 10 emerging and mid-level leaders and 10 seasoned professionals who are paired for one-on-one Mentoring Partnerships. The program spans 7 months from September 2018 to March 2019 with a commitment of 2-3 hours per month, including monthly one-on-one meetings for Mentoring Partners, group social activities and networking events, and VIP space at chapter events.
