Corporate Funder Discussion: Embedding Racial Equity Practices
June 29 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 amFree
We know that racial equity work is life’s work, and not just another item to check off the to-do list.
We also recognize that as our members seek to embed racial equity practices in their internal and external work in communities, our corporate foundation and grantmaking members face a unique set of circumstances in making change at their organizations. With added layers of management and governance, large(r) staffs/boards, and varying organizational structures, there are undoubtedly nuanced challenges our corporate members are facing.
We invite you to join us for a special conversation on Tuesday, June 29 from 8:30 – 10 am with Sharina Sallis of See What I Mean. Sharina is the Corporate Social Responsibility Manager at CUNA Mutual Group. When Sharina started her job at CUNA Mutual Group in 2005, she was one of only two employees of color in the entire 500-person Waverly office. Since then, she has worked tirelessly to support the diversity, equity and inclusion efforts of the company and supported transformational change within the organization and within their corporate giving practices.
Sharina will share the CUNA Mutual story with you, highlight key lessons learned, flag pitfalls to avoid and answer your questions during the session. We invite you to join us for this unique dialogue with a seasoned corporate giving professional about racial equity, diversity and inclusion in corporate foundations. Please register here and encourage other members of your team to participate as well.
