The summit aimed to shift philanthropy energy and efforts towards a more inclusive and just society and advance change through equity. Sessions and panels at the summit featured intersectional approaches to each topic, highlighting an array of perspectives and worldviews. As a core partner with CHANGE Philanthropy, the work of Native Americans in Philanthropy and the issues we advocate for were represented in vital, thought-provoking conversations around building a better tomorrow throughout the summit. Indigenous communities have had a longstanding culture of resistance, though we have often been omitted from various movements and advocacy spaces. The UNITY Summit planning committee and Native Americans in Philanthropy team made sure that Indigenous voices were lifted up throughout, encouraging philanthropy to decolonize its approaches to working with our communities. The session explored four models of community-centered giving that helping to redefine philanthropy, democratize capital, redistribute funds, educate donors, and effectively resource grantee groups. Native Americans in Philanthropy staff and board were honored to engage in this committed, vibrant community and look forward to seeing and being a part of the amazing partnerships and continued work. The summit provided not only a space for those working to advance resiliency, movement-building, and equity to connect and learn, but we have also walked away feeling rejuvenated in our work and thankful for the efforts of the CHANGE Philanthropy crew and planning team who put on an amazing summit!
2017 UNITY Summit Reflections: Investing in Movements for Equity
CHANGE Philanthropy is focused on creating a national movement among funders to improve the health and well-being of all communities—equally. We recognize that being able to connect with peers who are in the same place in the journey is an important step to creating increased impact. By connecting with others across the philanthropic sector, including other infrastructure allies, we can all create a shared practice and strategy across this sector. And this, in turn, will elevate our collective dialog exponentially. Every other year, we hold a UNITY Summit for our communities to come together and create a rich in-person dialog in a collaborative space where new ideas and strategies can be born. The UNITY Summit is an important opportunity for members of our network and beyond to come together to discuss and create cross-community impact strategies.

The workshop will explore current issues related to leadership and race in the nonprofit sector, particularly how identity impacts leadership experience and the aspiration to advance into leadership positions.
