Meet Our Keynote Speakers

C’Ardiss Gardner Gleser

C’Ardiss Gardner Gleser

C’Ardiss Gardner Gleser was the first Director of Programs and Strategic Initiatives at the Satterberg Foundation. She started the Black Ivy Collective in 2021. She brings her perspective as both a past foundation leader and as a current community activist to this conversation about what philanthropy should look like.

Gardner Gleser will lead us in a discussion about shifting power dynamics to get people closer to the challenges and the solutions in positions of power. We’ll explore how these changes can improve outcomes and allocation of resources, moving toward a goal of building on the compassion embedded in the idea of philanthropy to make a shift in the sector.

Lucy Bernholz, PhD

Lucy Bernholz, PhD

Her book, How We Give Now: A Philanthropic Guide for the Rest of Us, won the PROSE Award for scholarly work in economics.

Dr. Bernholz will discuss the ways we give and the implications for nonprofits and communities, and she will inspire us to reimagine the boundaries of giving.
