Race and Place: Transforming the Modern Non-Profit

Thursday, July 20, 2017
Thursday, July 20, 2017 | 11:45 AM - 1:30 PM

Program is generously supported by the Portland Timbers

Have you ever felt that your good work wasn’t good enough? Felt trapped by the simplistic urgency of short-term results? Struggled with how to untangle the racial disparities at the core of persistent poverty in our communities? 

Your local United Way has. Three years ago, they mounted an ambitious agenda to stop failing our region’s kids of color and poor families. It meant radically changing what they do and how they do it. 

Join United Way leaders to discuss what it takes to build the partnerships, use the data, and mobilize the know-how to create systems tailored to the needs of this fast-changing region. Learn how they are moving from a grantmaker to community problem solver. Wrestle with how operationalizing – not just committing to – racial equity changed how they do things. Talk about the successes and difficulties of creating new, mutually accountable funder and nonprofit relationships.
