Trust Black women
Welcome the third annual Trust Black Women cohort series for fall 2022. We are excited to engage in the philanthropic community once more to build relationships with Black women in philanthropy and discuss how our voices, skill, and positions are shaping the landscape of philanthropy, organizing, leadership development, and healing in Chicago and across Illinois.
what to expect
The cohort series will begin in September 2022 and end in December 2022. The series will include community panel discussions and leadership development courses which will be facilitated by Deborah Harris. Each leadership development course will include a brief presentation and open discussions. Participants will review and discuss philanthropy’s global and community impact on social justice issues and how Black voices and experiences are critical to shifting the landscape in a positive direction. The leadership courses will also include activities that will assist leaders to map out their own strategic visions for social change within the confines of their current positions they hold and how to build lasting partnership across the cohort and in the philanthropic sector itself.
Join leaders in the social sector as they discuss a range of topics from advancing racial equity in philanthropy to engaging in shared leadership to advance change. Our opening event and speaker series are free and open to the public.
Our leadership workshops will provide an opportunity for 20 Black women leaders to join together in a shared learning experience. For more information and to apply to participate in the leadership workshop please click here.
Participants in the leadership workshops will have the opportunity to partner with a mentor to support them through this shared learning experience. For more information and to apply to participate in the mentoring program please click here.
