PRESENTED BY LUMINA FOUNDATION WITH SUPPORT FROM THE WEST FOUNDATION

Join a conversation led by Riki Wilchins of TrueChild on gender norms, race, and philanthropy.

Age, class, race, and gender impact every issue funders and grantees address—health, education, the arts, and juvenile justice. Join this interactive, open presentation about the terms, ideas, and findings behind “intersectional” approaches that reconnect race, class, and gender to improve life outcomes.

While this event is a joint IPA affinity group convening, all are welcome to join. Lunch will be provided.
