Non-family Staff Peer Network: Racial Equity Discussions with Board and Staff

Join your peers and special guests Jennifer Langton and Chantelle Fisher-Borne for a continued space to share about racial equity within your foundations. Jennifer will share from her own experiences of learning and change at the Tzedek Social Justice Fund, a foundation which “redistributes money, resources, and power to support systems change and community healing in Asheville, North Carolina.” Chantelle leads Out in the South Initiative and has experience tackling tough issues in the South. Discuss how to approach tough conversations and how to bridge the gap that oftentimes exists between donors, board, and staff on equity issues. Bring your topics, favorite resources, and questions for peer staff members.
