In this free webinar, presented by the D5 Coalition in partnership with the Forum of Regional Associations of Grantmakers, Philanthropy Northwest will share its findings from a research study that explored the complex factors and opportunities that foundation leaders navigate to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in their foundations. Foundation executives that participated in a peer learning cohort as part of this study will reflect on their experiences and share their own lessons learned for colleagues and the field. Their work presents a model for both regional associations and foundations interested in facilitating peer learning and institutional change.

Speakers will include:

  • Susan Anderson, The CIRI Foundation
  • Kris Hermanns, Pride Foundation
  • Sindhu Knotz, Philanthropy Northwest
  • Kelly Brown, D5 (moderator)
