Acknowledging the experiences of alumni from marginalized populations, understanding the impact of institutionalized white privilege in higher education, and reconciling our own biases are key steps towards rethinking and redesigning traditional engagement and fundraising models in the 21st century and beyond. In this self-reflective workshop, attendees will work with their own institutional data relating to diversity and inclusion at their workplace and discuss how to tangibly strengthen and engage with marginalized alumni.
This session is designed for advancement professionals at all stages of their career who are new to educational advancement. Are you brand new to the profession?
