Classism, sizeism; ableism; there is no shortage of social-isms. However, there are many other social "-isms" that plague our society and interfere with the everyday lives of many people.

This three session series will provide a safe space to further explore:

  1. what it means to show up for others
  2. how to recover when you inevitably say the wrong thing
  3. how nonprofit philanthropy still needs work & what we can do about it
  4. the difference between allyship & solidarity

We know that this can be a sensitive area for some, so we are bringing in a panel of experts to ground us as we move through this series and provide attendees with the tools, wording and practices to allow you to show up for yourself and others.

We strive to co-create spaces of meaningful connection and belonging (these workshops are not webinars). We encourage and model frequent screen and body breaks. We believe collective learning leads to the most innovative and effective outcomes.

These virtual sessions will take place over Zoom.

We provide a link to our resource folder and slide deck draft 24 hours before the session as well as enable live transcription and closed caption during the live Zoom session. Our sessions are recorded (absent any technical difficulties) and can be accessed on our website a few days after the event.

Seats are limited and reserved on a first-come first-served basis.
