Straight Talk: Unpacking the Power Dynamic between Grantseekers and Grantmakers



The goal of this event is to foster an open, honest dialogue between grantmakers and grantseekers. By bringing both sides together, we aim to create an environment where attendees can discuss ways to improve communication, reframe potential conflicts into constructive conversations, and essentially unpack the power dynamic that can impede productivity on both sides of "the ask". The event will begin with a moderated panel discussion of both seasoned fundraisers and local Chicago grantors. As with all CWIP events, we hope this will be an opportunity for both networking and professional development.

 

Panelists will include Francia Harrington, Executive Leadership, Civic Engagement and Strategic Partnerships at Fifth Third Bank. The panel will be moderated by Brenda Asare, President & CEO of The Alford Group.


A full list of panelists and bios will be posted soon. Additional panelists will include representatives from foundations and some of their nonprofit grantees and partners. 

 

Thank you to Fifth Third Bank for your generous sponsorship of this CWIP event.
