Keynote | Building Equity for Native Communities Through Collaboration

Sponsored by

Invitations to the keynotes and learning sessions are limited to PEAK’s Organization Members along with PEAK2020 registrants who generously supported us by forgoing registration refunds.

Be sure to stay on after the keynote to network with your peers during our virtual happy hour!

At PEAK2019, keynote speaker Edgar Villanueva challenged us to recognize blind spots in philanthropy, and focus our efforts on centering Native peoples in all aspects of philanthropy. But how are foundations actually doing this, and how do grants management processes and data factor in?

Join us for a panel discussion examining how grants management processes and data can be used to make funding more accessible to, and focused on, Native communities. In addition to exploring the funding data tied to Native communities, panelists will also dive into the transformative journeys of the Bush Foundation and Calgary Foundation as they’ve pursued inclusivity through internal practice change.

Stay on the meeting for an optional virtual happy hour, immediately following the Keynote presentation. This happy hour is just for fun! Network with peers and share effective practices you learned throughout the conference. We will have a short intermission to give you time to grab a favorite beverage and get comfortable.
