Grantmakers for Education recently completed a survey of funders in which 39% identified racial justice in education as the most important area of focus for philanthropy over the next 1-3 years. To better meet member interests for collaboration and development, GFE, in partnership with The Equity Lab, will host a 3-part series of member-only focus groups designed to get specific about the ongoing work members can undertake together. These are open sessions facilitated by experts from The Equity Lab and designed to allow members to voice their perspectives and needs. The ultimate goal will be (1) to identify a small group of members to lead a steering committee to work with GFE staff on the network’s ongoing agenda for racial justice in education and (2) to identify programming interests in the short and longer term.
The meetings will take place April 15, 22 and 29 from 2:00 - 3:00 p.m. ET. The first meeting will be a time to get to know each other and share thoughts and ideas. Registering for the series and attending the first meeting does not obligate you to attend all three; likewise you can attend the second one without attending the first.
We hope you will join us in this opportunity to help shape our programming and guide our work in this important area.
This event is exclusive to Grantmakers for Education members. There is no cost to attend this Grantmakers for Education program.
