Mark your calendar & bring your staff! You need to hear this.

We have all heard the term “diversity and inclusion” at one time or another. But, what does it really mean to diversify and be inclusive? In an ever-changing philanthropic landscape, both diversity and inclusion are imperative from an ethical and competitive edge perspective.

Join us to learn more about:

  • How to encourage and maintain a diverse fundraising staff
  • How to fundraise in diverse environments
  • How to reach out to diverse donors
  • How to ensure you are inclusive to all your donors

Don’t miss your chance to hear from local leaders on how to weave diversity and inclusion into the fabric of what you and your organization do every day.

This session will feature both an interactive panel discussion and your chance to participate in a Q&A.

Do you have a question you would like answered by the panelists? Email it to us at by October 16th and we will do our best to include it in the discussion.
