NCFP’s Family Philanthropy Racial Justice Symposium is a two-day virtual learning opportunity for family foundation board members, CEOs, senior staff, and next generation family members seeking to deepen their knowledge around racial equity frameworks and practices. Leverage Philanthropic Partners, ABFE, Resource Generation, other experts in this space will lead and facilitate multiple program tracks.

Day one will introduce fundamental topics, provide the necessary grounding for the conversations, and discuss foundational strategies.
