Fireside Chat Part 1 | Liberate Yourself: How to Bring Your Full Identity to Your Work | Tuesday, January 14, 2020 | 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm PST
Have you ever been a room full of people who don’t look like you? Do you code switch at work because you know you can’t be real in certain environments? You’re not alone. The norms in philanthropy often prevent us from bringing our authentic selves to our workplaces, even when many of us come from the communities most impacted by inequity. How can we begin to lean into our identities, share our stories, and lift up our backgrounds to liberate philanthropy?
This is the first of two fireside chats that will dig into some hard truths about the challenges we face when we try to liberate philanthropy. This session is a conversation between communication leaders working in social impact and is designed for all people, with a focus on POC, Queer, and female-presenting philanthropic professionals.
