Chicago Women in Philanthropy presented:

Straight Talk: Unpacking the Power Dynamic between Grantseekers and Grantmakers

Friday, January 26, 2018

Woman’s Athletic Club, Chicago, IL

8:30 AM – 10:30AM

The goal of this event was to foster an open, honest dialogue between grantmakers and grantseekers. By bringing both sides together, we aimed to create an environment where attendees can discuss ways to improve communication, reframe potential conflicts into constructive conversations, and essentially unpack the power dynamic that can impede productivity on both sides of “the ask.” The event began with a moderated panel discussion of both seasoned fundraisers and local Chicago grantors. As with all CWIP events, this was an opportunity for both networking and professional development. The moderator was  Diane Knoepke, Vice President with The Alford Group.
