  • Creating an Environment of Inclusivity in Philanthropy

    Jun 9, 08:00 AM - 09:00 AM (ET)
    AFP Berks is proud to present a DEI program with special guest speaker Tracy Parmer, Board Member of the LGBT Center of Greater Reading. Tracy is employed with Met-Ed/FirstEnergy as a policy analyst in the Emerging Technologies Strategy sector. She is actively involved in the Company’s diversity and inclusion efforts, as well as advancing women in leadership and mentorship programs. 
    As a woman employed in a predominantly male dominated industry for the last 16 years, she’s learned a thing or two about being “the only” in the room. As  someone who also identifies as being part of the LGBTQ community, the feeling and reality of “onlyness” increases exponentially. Tracy will talk us through some practical steps we can take to promote inclusivity in philanthropy.
