Please join us for a spring gathering of philanthropic advisors. This conversation will focus on how you are advancing equity based grantmaking practices with your clients. Gioia Perugini will share her journey around equity, ways in which she's advanced more equitable grantmaking practices in her client advisory, and the hurdles along the way. Far beyond a simple presentation, we hope this session will create a rich dialogue of sharing and learning amongst practitioners in the room and that learning will be multidirectional.
