Peer Networking Seeking Equity and Justice.

PURPOSE

Our purpose is twofold. First, to create an inclusive space for nonprofit leaders to learn & share as they work to address racial equity and social justice individually and collaboratively within the nonprofit space. Second, to design an action-oriented learning space with the goal of developing implementable tools for building more equitable organizations and communities.

Success for our work means:

  • Together SC has established an equity peer network to increase collaboration and resource sharing among nonprofit leaders in South Carolina.
  • Together SC has established an equity learning cohort with a consistent level of knowledge among nonprofit leaders.
