Diversity Workshop:

Giving 3.0: Embracing the New Diversity in 21st Century Philanthropy

Speaker: Jackie Copeland-Carson, Ph.D. Catholic Charities of Santa Clara County, San Jose, California. Room 3014.

Changing demographics and a global economy demand that contemporary fundraisers understand how to be successful in increasingly multicultural communities. Over the past 30 years, the philanthropy field finally has recognized that all communities have some form of philanthropy. However, inclusion of donors of color still remains the elusive last frontier of American fundraising. Furthermore, there are new social identities that challenge conventional notions of diversity defined in broad ethnic or racial terms

Sponsored by The Alford Group and the AFP Diversity & Inclusion Committee

Read about Jackie Copeland-Carson’s take on how much progress the sector has made in the areas of diversity and inclusion.

Diversity Art Showcase:

This year’s Diversity Art Showcase will be presented throughout the AFP Hub located in the Marketplace Exhibit Hall. We will be posting artwork and competition results throughout the conference. Follow the conversation on Twitter!
