Shifting Power for Greater Equity and Impact

We’re excited to share the details of the second session in our 7 Actionable Principles for a Strong Social Sector virtual learning series:

Please join us for an interactive panel discussion on how we prioritize equity. We’ll focus on how we acknowledge inequitable power dynamics and use, shift, and cede power to achieve more equitable organizations and better community outcomes.

Panel participants from foundations and nonprofits will reflect on the power and privilege they hold from where they sit; provide examples of how they are seeking to wield that power and privilege differently for more equitable outcomes; and will engage participants in Q&A and discussion around the topic of shifting power. As part of the panel, attendees will be provided with resources to further explore shifting power within their organizations.

Panelists will include:

  • Lori Bartczak, Senior Director of Knowledge and Content, Community Wealth Partners, Facilitator
  • Erika Viccellio, Executive Director, and Martize Tolbert, Client Partner Navigator, The Fountain Fund
  • Brandi Yee, Chief Program Officer, ACT for Alexandria
  • Katie Kling, Senior Donor Relations Manager, Charlottesville Area Community Foundation
  • Richard Morris, Co-Executive Director, Cultivate Charlottesville

CNE is excited to launch 7 Actionable Principles for a Strong Social Sector!

Building on themes from 10 discussion sessions with 67 community members, and several leading national frameworks for nonprofit health and impact, the 7 Actionable Principles aim to create a shared understanding of what makes a healthy nonprofit and build a supportive learning community of nonprofits and funders.
