Event description

Description

Learn how to build better futures for all children and families.

Capita recently released its first white paper, Tomorrow is Now: New Directions for Children's Philanthropy. We are collaborating with Openfields to host Intersectional Innovation: Transcending the Silos of Modern Philanthropy to unpack what's in the white paper and develop implementable strategies to prepare leaders in children's philanthropy and advocates for the work that lies ahead.

This generative workshop will guide leaders through an exploration of four principles for intersectional innovation and identify opportunities for implementing the principles in the context of participants’ own organizations.

Lunch will be provided. If you have any special dietary needs, please contact Hilary Rikard (hilary@capitasocial.org).
