Advancement Northwest is dedicated to elevating the professionalism of fundraisers and promoting high ethical standards and trust among donors. It is imperative that we come together as a community and do our part to dismantle systemic racism and shift the way we advance philanthropy from one of charity to one of justice.
Amidst the feelings of anger, sadness, frustration, fear, and anxiety over the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Manuel Ellis, as well as the many other lost Black lives who did not make headlines, this Wednesday’s Summer Social will be dedicated to providing a safe space and an open forum for us to express our emotions, affirm our support for our Black colleagues, and grow professionally.
We will begin as a larger group before breaking out into smaller groups during the event with the hope that we can all use this time together to be in community, develop allyship, and affirm our solidarity.
All are welcome. We hope you will join us. This event is FREE and open to all. Please register to get the Zoom link.
