Joint Non-family Staff and Engaging Youth Peer Network: Connecting Family Across Distance

Please note: This Peer Network was originally scheduled for March 25, 2020 and has been rescheduled to June 17, 2020. If you registered for the March 25 event, you are still registered for this updated date and will be sent login information closer to the event. 

For families that are spread across multiple locations, it takes effort to effectively engage all members near and far. Join Bruce Karmazin, Executive Director of the Lumpkin Family Foundation, Jenny Kelly, Executive Director of the Roy A. Hunt Foundation, and Steve Toben, President of the Flora Family Foundation, in a conversation about connecting geographically dispersed family members with their philanthropy. There are even more challenges today to supporting family across distance as we face a pandemic and a reckoning with the results of systemic racism. Speakers will share strategies for engagement historically and how they’ve adapted during this moment in time.

This is a joint Peer Network event for our Non-family Staff Peer Network and Engaging Youth Peer Network. Come prepared for an engaging dialogue—we may facilitate small group breakouts to discuss engaging youth versus engaging adult family members who are geographically dispersed. As a reminder, our Peer Network events are not recorded. Join with your webcam if possible, or call in for audio only.
