Inclusion & Access Efforts
CHANGE Philanthropy, in partnership with our coalition partners, is transforming philanthropy from within by building knowledge, fostering diversity, and creating connections through advocacy with an intersectional approach. The Unity Summit was created to increase those connections and build knowledge across the sector; we are proud it has become one of the largest and most diverse gatherings in philanthropy. This beautiful and powerful convening of philanthrofolk (philanthropic activists and allies advancing equity) represented by diverse races, ethnicities, national origins, dis/abilities, genders, sexual orientations, ages, and religions make up our community at 2019 Unity Summit.
The Unity Summit ascribes and aspires to radical hospitality through an equity-centered, social justice lens. Along with our logistics planning partner, Events by Lady K, we are striving to create an event where all attendees feel welcomed, celebrated, and included when they enter a space. Together, our teams have been working diligently to infuse accessibility into the Unity Summit throughout all levels of planning.
The Unity Summit strives to create an inclusive environment for the time we spend together. We are committed to integrating language translation and mobility access for all attending and this year the Unity Summit is highlighting gender inclusion and accessibility as an integrated practice throughout the event.
Special thank you to the Ford Foundation for their generous support, enabling our extended access support this year! to extend our access support this year!
