November 9, 2022: CEO Forum: Leadership Challenges and Opportunities in a Time of Flux – A CEO Workshop

November 9, 2022,8:30 am - 12:30 pm

How can we translate our commitment to courageous leadership into brave actions? How can philanthropy take its work to the next level to realize our vision of a just and equitable South? These questions lie at the heart of Philanthropy Southeast’s 2022 Annual Meeting – Bold Moves: Building a Brighter Future.

This November, we will come together in Amelia Island, Florida, and online to explore how the call to courage we answered last year has now become a call to action.

Preconference Session: CEO Forum: Leadership Challenges and Opportunities in a Time of Flux – A CEO Workshop

Foundations have shifted practices and adapted in a time of great challenge and crisis these past several years. This session will explore what has changed, what hasn’t, and the additional possibilities for foundations to contribute to a better future for communities and for the country.

Phil Buchanan, president of the Center for Effective Philanthropy and author of Giving Done Right, will share CEP’s latest research on foundation practices and approaches and facilitate a candid conversation about the most pressing issues on the minds of foundation CEOs. How can foundation governance and board composition evolve to meet the moment? How can racial equity best be advanced? How can foundations help to dismantle structural inequities while also countering polarization? How can foundations best work productively with the nonprofits they fund to seek to achieve common goals – and how can the power dynamics that often get in the way best be countered? This highly interactive session will engage these questions and others on participants’ minds. Session attendees will come away with new ideas, new relationships with colleagues, and new knowledge of sector-wide trends and data.
