Wednesday, July 27, 2016 8:30am - 10:00am CDT
Headwaters Foundation for Justice, 2801 21st Ave S, #131, Minneapolis, MN 55407

Description: Join the Program Officers Network for a conversation about racial equity in grantmaking. This meeting will focus on how to support organizations for and led by people of color. Allison Johnson, Ron McKinley Philanthropy Fellow at Headwaters Foundation for Justice, will facilitate the conversation and host us at their offices. An article will be shared in advance of the meeting to help spark our discussion!

In 2016, the Program Officers Network is using a book club format for its meetings. In advance of each meeting, we will circulate a timely article addressing a key issue in philanthropy and use this material as the focus for meeting discussion. Each meeting will also include time to get to know our fellow program officers and share updates about our work. Drinks and light refreshments will be provided.
