The Episcopal Impact Fund We Need to Be: A Series on Social Justice, Poverty and Impact

[Webinar Series] Episcopal Impact Fund Presents Insights and Impact

In this time of heightened focus, acknowledging the intersection between race, class and poverty has become even more urgent. An impactful response requires education, commitment, personal transformation, and action. Episcopal Impact Fund is partnering with Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) expert Robert Greene of Cedar & Burwell to bring you a three-part webinar series aimed at equipping all of us in the Episcopal Impact Fund community—board, staff, donors, and Episcopalians of the Bay Area—for personal growth and action. We are all doing the best we can and we can all do better.

In this series:

  • Provide a framework of knowledge, terminology and resources about social and racial justice that will allow our community to face this urgent time together

  • Educate ourselves on the intersection of race, class and poverty so we can unite to address better the root causes of poverty in the San Francisco Bay Area

  • Challenge ourselves to go beyond listening and learning and embrace personal and organizational transformation and action within our communities

We highly recommend that you read The Person You Mean To Be, by Dolly Chugh, MBA, associate professor at NYU’s Stern School of Business before the first session.
