  • Virtual Roundtable: Work Life Balance

    Join us on Tuesday, October 12, 2021 at 10:30 am for a virtual Zoom roundtable where we'll discuss Work Life Balance. The session will begin with a panel discussion by notable Los Angeles based recruiters who will explore:

    1. New priorities in the wake of the pandemic
    2. Generational differences in how those priorities play out
    3. Changing employer expectations
    4. What recruiters are hearing from both sides - job seekers and hiring employers.

    We are living in a moment of time where acts of performative allyship are at an all-time high. How do we shut out the noise and focus on the work at hand? How do we come together and begin to dismantle systems that don’t serve us? There are many approaches we can take, but we must start at the beginning and take steps together.

    Join us for a first-ever joint collaboration with our colleagues from AFP-Chicago. This peer-led workshop will be facilitated by IDEA Committee members from each chapter, and will include breakout sessions on three IDEA-related topics:

    o My Experience as a Fundraiser of Color

    o Managing Up: Fundraisers of Color and their Managers

    o Power and Privilege: White Allyship in the Fundraising Space

    We invite you to listen, learn and hold space for each other as we continue to heal and shift behaviors in this new era of philanthropy.
