Many nonprofits serve historically marginalized and under resourced communities. That's one of the many reasons why our sector requires a deeper focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion. Fortunately, Kansas City is home to multiple nonprofit leaders who are skilled at putting equity at the center of their work, and we have a fantastic opportunity to learn with them in this interactive discussion.
During this session, you’ll learn from individuals who were nominated for the Equity in Action Award at the 2021 Philanthropy Awards Luncheon. We've celebrated their accomplishments and now it's time to take a peek behind the curtain to understand what happened behind the scenes so that we can apply those learnings to our own organizations.
In the second part of the session, we’ll move into breakout rooms to encourage small group discussion and networking. You will have the opportunity to share your perspective, ask questions, and gain insight from your nonprofit peers.
This is a program of the Let's Connect: Virtual Discussion Series.
Nonprofit professionals know how turn obstacles into opportunities and make lemonade out of lemons. Join several 2021 Philanthropy Awards Nominees to hear how these individuals develop and practice their outstanding commitment to equity. More than a recap of their awards submission, these speakers will share a behind-the-scenes peek at what it takes to put equity into action.
Your active participation is highly encouraged. No one has all of the solutions, but everyone has something worth contributing. Your small group discussion participation will help others share, grow, and learn.
