Black Grant Directors’ Roundtable: Lessons from a Career in Philanthropy

Organization Members Only

The publication of our winter 2020 edition of the PEAK Grantmaking Journal, focused on Black Voices in Grants Management, was just the beginning of this conversation for us. This webinar is the second in a two-part series focused on Black voices. View the recording of the first webinar. Hear from three grants management leaders who offer on-the-ground testimony to the challenges of Black professionals in the sector – from the complexities of practicing DEI, to the ways race has affected perceptions of their leadership, to the realities of code-switching their way through the white-dominant workplace.
