In the final webinar of our “Authentic Community Engagement” series, we will explore key pathways for building and nurturing meaningful relationships and partnerships with a diverse network of grantees. This session will expose community members to stories and tools that will leave them better equipped to design, build and sustain partnerships with proximate leaders guided by the core belief that proximity is both expertise and power.
Leaders from New Profit will share a three-part adapted framework for philanthropy for building depth of trust and familiarity with proximate leaders by considering truth-telling, redesign and equity.
In this particular moment of fundamental disruption as social distancing practices make it harder to build proximity, it is more important now than ever to build coalitions with leaders most proximate to communities with whom we seek to partner.
By building authentic relationships with proximate leaders, we can share power and be guided and informed by these partnerships in order to build more just and equitable systems led by key stakeholders and communities most systematically affected.
This event is intended for members and education grantmakers. There is no cost to attend this Grantmakers for Education program.
Monthly Master Class
The purpose of the Monthly Master Class is to engage in deeper learning together and practice talking across difference. On the first Friday of each month, Grantmakers for Education hosts an interview-based webinar. Each session is anchored by reflections from one to two members and a nonprofit or academic leader and includes time for questions and collaborative sense-making among presenters and attendees.
