Bold Conversation with Brickson Diamond Thursday June 21st at NOON, ET
Thursday, June 21, 2012 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM (EDT)
Join Bolder Giving on Thursday, June 21st at noon eastern time for a free teleconference with Brickson Diamond.
For Brickson Diamond, giving is about far more than just writing a check. As a gay black man who grew up in Atlanta with role models who were leaders in the church and the civil rights movement, Brickson learned to give of his time, his talents, and his treasure. Today, he offers all of these through service with the Liberty Hill Foundation, a progressive Los Angeles public foundation, and leadership of the Blackhouse Foundation, which he co-founded to expand opportunities for black filmmakers.
Brickson’s commitment to access for marginalized communities stems from the impact that educational access, at Brown University and Harvard Business School, had on his life. Join us to hear how Brickson leverages all of his resources to support greater access at home in Los Angeles, and across the country.
Bold Conversations is a monthly phone discussion hosted by Anne Ellinger, co-founder of Bolder Giving. Each month you can join a conversation with an extraordinary giver who will share strategies, challenges, and excitement about their giving.
The format of each Bold Conversation is a 60 min. free teleconference call. Anne and the featured guest talk, pausing frequently for questions and comments from listeners. We aim for an informal, interactive, and frank discussion where listeners apply lessons to their own giving. You can also listen to archived conversations and join online chats with Bold Givers hosted by the Chronicle of Philanthropy.

Bolder Giving's mission is to inspire and support people to give at their full lifetime potential. We promote three ways to give boldly.
- Give more: The average giving in the U.S. is 2-3% of annual income. We help those who can afford it to take quantum leaps further.
- Risk more: Many people are in an uninspired giving rut. We invite people to be more adventurous, strategic, and involved.
- Inspire more: Most people rarely talk about their giving. We support people to step out, start conversations, and to inspire others about the joy of giving.
