Collaborative Learning for Collective Action: Advancing Trust-Based Capacity Building (Resilia)

21 funders across the U.S. have joined ELEVATE, a learning and action network dedicated to strengthening historically marginalized communities through trust-based capacity building and equity-centric data sharing. Led by Resilia, a Black woman-led social impact organization, ELEVATE leverages the power of the collective to amplify the capacity and voices of BIPOC-led/serving grassroots organizations. This conversation will explore how funders are deploying trust-based capacity building strategies with Resilia’s customized support that responds to the mission-facing and back-office needs of nonprofits by meeting them where they are. After a roundtable discussion, Resilia’s Anthony Simmons will invite attendees to reimagine further a new dynamic of capacity building that drives equitable outcomes in which BIPOC-led/serving changemakers build agency in their communities.

This event is sponsored and presented by Resilia.
