Our state’s annual gathering of Allies for Good is heading in a new direction this year. Facing Race Together will offer an immersive learning experience to aid attendees and their organizations in better understanding and tackling issues of race, equity and inclusion (REI).
The Nonprofit Summit Program Committee, chaired by, Melanie Huggins of Richland Library and Sherrie Snipes-Williams of Charleston Promise Neighborhood, is off to a great start! Starting Wednesday, March 4, we kick off our three days together with acclaimed author of "Biased" and recent interviewee on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, Dr. Jennifer Eberhardt.
In addition to two plenary sessions, Thursday and Friday will offer attendees the ability to chart their own Summit experiences. Individuals will pre-select four concurrent sessions to help them better understand and tackle issues of race, equity and inclusion (REI) no matter where they are on their own personal journeys—as an individual, an organizational leader or a community leader.
At this time, Together SC is seeking dynamic and experienced presenters with REI expertise to facilitate concurrent sessions.
Topic areas that we are seeking:
- Advocacy and Legislative Action
- Creating a Culture of Inclusion
- Environmental Justice
- Equity in the Arts
- Grantmaking with an REI Lens
- Health and Food Equity
- Inclusive Strategies for Attracting and Retaining POC
- Income Inequality
- REI Strategies for Board Members
- Unconscious Bias
- Working With and Engaging Donors of Color
If you would like to facilitate a session in one of our specified topic areas, we encourage you to submit an application now through September 6.
We look forward to hearing your ideas!
