Will you be in Toronto for the Council on Foundations Annual Conference?

If you answered "Yes" to that question, then you are invited to the EPIP Annual Program...

If you will be at the conference - email me and let me know. If you are interested in helping to organize our reception, or having your organization co-sponsor the reception, let me know that as well.


The Power To Be Authentic: Leadership Development at Work in Foundations
Tuesday, April 27, 2004, 11-12:30 AM
Co-Sponsored by EPIP & GrantCraft

This year EPIP and the GrantCraft Project are co-organizing a very exciting workshop, that will help participants to understand how to take on their
role in their organizations and to lead "from the middle." It will also help those in senior and junior positions to think about how they can either ask
for or provide the support needed by staff to take on their challenging roles. GrantCraft, a project of the Ford Foundation, is a source of practical wisdom for grantmakers on the tools and techniques of effective grantmaking.

The workshop will feature an inter-generational cast of facilitators, speakers and respondents:

Emerson Beyer, Program Associate, GrantCraft Project, Ford Foundation

Omisade Billie Burney, Program Director, The Warner Foundation

Jan Jaffe, Director, GrantCraft Project, Ford Foundation

George Penick, President, Foundation for the Mid-South

Dr. William Richardson, President & CEO, W.K. Kellogg Foundation

Molly Schultz, Program Manager, Jewish Funders Network

Rusty Stahl, Executive Director, Emerging Practitioners in Philanthropy

Stephanie Yang, Program Officer, The Women's Foundation of California

We are very happy to once again this year co-sponsor our reception with our colleague organizations Changemakers and Resource Generation, with the addition of co-sponsor GrantCraft this year.

The reception will take place Tuesday evening, and our request for use of the Toronto City Hall Rotunda has been supported by the office of Olivia Chow, Toronto City Councillor & Youth Advocate, who is our invited speaker. We have also invited emerging practitioners in philanthropy and some youth activists from the Toronto area to join us and welcome us to their city! It should be a great evening of networking and fun.
