This program is a webinar.

What does it mean for funders to build power? As more and more grantmakers embark on or deepen journeys to embed values of equity, diversity and inclusion into their work, how can we incorporate a power-building frame to measure meaningful progress on equity?

Join NCRP and FCCP for the second webinar in our series on the exciting new resource, Power Moves: Your essential philanthropy assessment guide for equity and justice.

The webinar features an expert panel of practitioners to help us dive into the Building Power section of the toolkit, including entry points, emerging examples of how users are digging in and best practices for examining funding for advocacy, organizing and civic engagement rooted in marginalized communities.

Daniel Lee, Executive Director of the Levi Strauss Foundation, will moderate a rich discussion with featured speakers Alejandra Ibañez, Lead Program Officer for Woods Fund Chicago; Rhiannon Rossi, Program Officer with the Women’s Foundation of California; and Elizabeth Tan of E-Tan Consulting. All three featured speakers are members of the Power Moves advisory and peer learning groups for funders and consultants.
