Event Details

Interested in learning how your organizational culture either supports or detracts from your organization’s effectiveness? Join Grantmakers for Effective Organizations in partnership with North Carolina Network of Grantmakers for this full day interactive workshop designed for mid- to senior-level leaders who are at the early stages of centering equity within their organizational culture or those who are looking to shift their organizational culture to center equity to better support their values, mission and goals.

Participant Eligibility

GEO workshops are open to current GEO members; all staff and trustees of grantmaking institutions; staff of philanthropy-supporting infrastructure groups, such as regional associations of grantmakers and affinity groups; and staff of academic institutions and programs focused primarily on the study of philanthropy and the practice of giving.

Limiting participation to organizations that are eligible for GEO membership creates a space where participants can speak openly and candidly about challenges within their work.

To achieve this, GEO workshops are not open to nonprofits and grant seekers unless invited to speak at the workshop. Similarly, consultants are not eligible to attend GEO workshops unless they are invited to speak or are registered to represent a current client foundation. Should consultants wish to attend on behalf of a current client foundation, GEO requires confirmation from the client foundation confirming the consultant’s affiliation, and consultants should be registered as part of or by the client foundation.

Please visit our membership page for additional information on GEO membership and conference participation eligibility.
