PEAK Grantmaking

PEAK2022 Online

PEAK2022 Online

From March 21–25, 2022, more than 1,200 members of the PEAK community came together for a virtual conference centering on what it looks like to “live your PEAK.” Across the week, we imagined how grantmaking can truly embody what PEAK stands for: Principles, Equity, Advocacy, and Knowledge, taking inspiration from thought-provoking keynotes, interactive peer dialogues, skill-building breakouts, and community gatherings, leaving empowered to lead change in their organizations and the sector at large.
ATTENDEES CAN ACCESS THE PROGRAM ON DEMAND VIA THE PEAK2022 PLATFORM UNTIL JULY 1, 2022

Program Highlights

Three keynotes featured dynamic speakers in conversations on operationalizing equity, advocating for psychological safety, and emergent learning in the philanthropic sector.

A series of breakouts took deeper dives into practice areas through panel and workshop sessions, roundtables, and short talks. These programs highlighted key topics such as trust-based philanthropy, launching a values-based grants management system, grantmaking as a 501(c)(4), centering people with disabilities in your practices, and the burden of indirect cost limits on grantees.

Each of PEAK’s chapters and peer groups convened, providing opportunities to join with regional communities, caucuses, affinity groups, or communities of practice.

Through daily social and networking events, colleagues connected at our opening reception, newcomers’ orientation, speed networking sessions, social hour, and volunteer reception, and join in a virtual field trip to the National Center for Civil and Human Rights.

Plus, we had NOLA Time! Throughout the week, a nine-episode series of short, inspiring films from New Orleans nonprofits and filmmakers highlighted the area’s history and culture through music, dance, film, and spoken-word performances.

Keynotes

Vu's and Amoretta's headshots are side by side. Vu holds a unicorn, while Amoretta smiles.
OPENING KEYNOTE
Monday, March 21 | 12:00–1:15 p.m. ET

Connecting on Equity: An honest conversation on what’s standing in the way of progress

As we aim to uplift and operationalize equity in the philanthropic sector, we find hesitation and slow movement toward progress. Our opening keynote brings together two dynamic leaders, Vu Le and Amoretta Morris, for a candid exchange that explores that reticence and challenges us to push forward with bold and unrestrained resolve to be more equitable in our grantmaking practices.

Sponsored by Fluxx

Vu Le is a writer, speaker, vegan, Pisces, and the former executive director of Rooted in Vibrant Communities, a nonprofit in Seattle that promotes social justice by developing leaders of color, strengthening organizations led by communities of color, and fostering collaboration between diverse communities. He plies his irreverent sense of humor and direct approach to the world of nonprofit work on his blog NonprofitAF.

Amoretta Morris is the president of Borealis Philanthropy. She came to Borealis from the Annie E. Casey Foundation, where she served as director of National Community Strategies. Throughout her career, Amoretta has devoted herself to social change. She brings a range of critical perspectives and experiences to philanthropy—as an organizer, grantee, board member, staff member, and donor. Amoretta has more than a decade of experience shaping policies and programs to improve the lives of youth and families. She has moved between the nonprofit and government sectors, either organizing for social change from the outside or reforming institutions from the inside.

Aiko and Megan are pictured side by side in their headshots.
MIDWEEK KEYNOTE
Wednesday, March 23 | 12:00–1:15 p.m. ET

Advocating for Psychological Safety and Wellness in the Philanthropic Sector

Building trust and psychological safety are key components to creating a more equitable philanthropic sector. In order for those dynamics to thrive, it is essential to build strong relationships between staff, boards, grantee partners, and other key stakeholders. Join us for a critical conversation with Aiko Bethea and Megan Reitz to learn more about what psychological safety is and the foundational role it plays in fostering trust, wellness, and relationship-building. Together, they will explain how you can build stronger teams and organizations and lead from your seat to advocate for safety, trust, and wellness.

The founder of RARE Coaching & Consulting, Aiko Bethea is an executive coach to leaders and teams of Fortune 100 companies and global nonprofit organizations, guiding them to remove barriers to inclusion. Her career is deeply rooted in the government, philanthropic, nonprofit, and private sectors, and she has served in numerous leadership roles including the director of compliance for the city of Atlanta, deputy director of a compliance department at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and the head of diversity and inclusion for Fred Hutch Cancer Research Center. She has been recognized by Forbes as one of the top seven anti-racism educators for companies and by CultureAmp as a DEI influencer to follow.

Megan Reitz is a facilitator, teacher, speaker, executive coach, researcher and author dedicated to exploring and finding ways to improve the way we interact with one another in the workplace. Working at the intersection of leadership, change, dialogue, and mindfulness, she has presented her research to audiences throughout the world and is ranked as one of the top 50 management thinkers in the world by Thinkers50 and is on the 2021 HR Most Influential list of thinkers. Her most recent research with John Higgins examines how perceptions of power enable and silence others is the subject of their new book, Speak Up: Say what needs to be said and hear what needs to be heard.

The four panelists' headshots are featured side by side.
CLOSING KEYNOTE
Friday, March 25 | 3:15–4:30 p.m. ET

Continuing the Conversation: The changing face of philanthropy

Four women of color CEOs continue the discussion that started at PEAK2021 on the changing face of philanthropy. PEAK’s Satonya Fair will lead a conversation with Susan Taylor Batten, Carmen Rojas, and Sherece West-Scantlebury to discuss their own emergent learning journeys over the past year, share experiences that have equipped them for the challenges now facing the sector, and connect on how their thinking has evolved regarding ways to narrow power gaps and deepen partnerships with their staff, collaborators, and communities.

Sponsored by The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust

PEAK President and CEO Satonya Fair, JD works closely with the board and staff to articulate and implement a vision for the future of PEAK, ensuring a values-driven approach in which equity, diversity, inclusion, and an awareness of power dynamics is central to the craft of philanthropy. Fair brings more than 25 years of experience in the nonprofit and philanthropic sectors. Prior to PEAK, she was vice president and chief philanthropy officer at The Executive Leadership Council where she developed and launched a philanthropic engagement strategy for the organization. Fair was director of grants management at the Annie E. Casey Foundation and served in management roles at Citi. Advocating for practices and policies that support children, their families, and communities is a mainstay to Fair’s professional career and volunteerism. She earned her JD at The University of Cincinnati.

Susan Taylor Batten is president and chief executive officer of ABFE: A Philanthropic Partnership for Black Communities. Since joining ABFE in 2009, Batten has led the organization’s philanthropic advising and programming on responsive philanthropy in Black communities for foundation leaders, donors, and aligned partners. Batten came to ABFE after more than 25 years of leadership experience in both the private and public sectors. Prior to joining ABFE, Batten served as senior associate with the Annie E. Casey Foundation. In the public sector, Batten worked as a senior analyst for the US Department of Agriculture and in the Government of the District of Columbia as an analyst on initiatives supporting children, youth, and families.

Dr. Carmen Rojas is the president and CEO of the Marguerite Casey Foundation. Prior to joining Marguerite Casey Foundation, she was the cofounder and CEO of The Workers Lab, an innovation lab that invests in entrepreneurs, community organizers, and government leaders to create replicable, revenue-generating solutions that improve conditions for low-wage workers. In addition, Rojas was the acting director of collective impact at Living Cities. In this role, she supported 22 of the largest foundations and financial institutions in the world in order to improve economic opportunities for low-income people, supporting projects in the fields of economic and workforce development, energy efficiency, and asset building. Rojas earned her Ph.D. in city and regional planning from the University of California, Berkeley.

Sherece West-Scantlebury, Ph.D. is the CEO of the Winthrop Rockefeller Foundation. From her early beginnings as a housing advocate in New York City to leading programs at some of the most prestigious foundations in the southeastern United States, Sherece West-Scantlebury has been relentless in her quest to increase prosperity for families striving to move out of poverty. Before the Winthrop Rockefeller Foundation, she was the founding CEO of the Foundation for Louisiana, and prior to that role, she was with the Annie E. Casey Foundation. West-Scantlebury earned her Ph.D. in public policy at the University of Maryland.
