To do our work well and uphold our promise to society, leaders in philanthropy must try to foster a sense of shared humanity, build common ground, and work collaboratively for the greater good. But how can we do that at a time of incredible division and mistrust? Join us for a conversation to discuss why it is so crucial for philanthropy to bridge differences and how we can build the skills and relationships necessary to do so. Facilitated by Dr. Allison Briscoe-Smith, Senior Fellow at UC Berkeley's Greater Good Science Center, this discussion will introduce specific tools and practices for bridging and feature a case study from the funders behind the New Pluralists, a funder collaborative committed to strengthening a culture of pluralism in America.
