Speaker and Content

The Nellie Mae Education Foundation is deep in the midst of examining and evaluating its grantmaking initiatives and processes through a DEI (diversity, equity, and inclusion) lens. At this brown-bag lunch, Nick Donohue, the Foundation's president, will not only share the work that his organization is doing around race equity, but also explain the learnings that encouraged the Foundation to develop its race-equity focus.



This event is free. Don't forget to bring your lunch.
