Participation, Power and Philanthropy: Putting Nonprofits and Communities in the Driver's Seat

Event Details

As grantmakers, our desire to have a transformational impact on the communities we serve catalyzes and ignites our work. To create the greatest impact, we must work in tandem with nonprofits and those with lived experience to sufficiently understand the issues and to co-create a path forward. What does it truly look like to have nonprofits and communities drive our work? When and how should participation be employed to center our work on community needs?

Join GEO at this session during the Council on Foundation’s Leading Together 2021 and walk away with concrete ways to think about participation and centering community needs, experience and expertise in philanthropic work.

Start: Tuesday, June 15, 1:10 PM Eastern

End: Tuesday, June 15, 2:00 PM Eastern
