Join the Development Peer Network for our fall inperson workshop with Quinetha Frasier, Co-Founder and Principal Consultant with Southern Equity Collective.

During our time together, we will discuss the impact of bias on how we interact with donors and other nonprofit stakeholders and how to actively apply what we learn to our work to benefit our community.

We are excited to have this opportunity to learn collaboratively and create change in how we fundraise. 

Lunch will be provided.
