As we take intrepid steps forward into a world forever changed, All In examines the skill sets and mindsets being embraced by a wave of leaders who are collectively weaving a new story for our region.

Grantmakers for Effective Organizations (GEO) President and CEO Marcus Walton will set the stage with insights from leading an international community of 6,000+ funders committed to transforming philanthropic culture and practice. In the way forward, what stays? What evolves? As a sector, what do we hold true?

Marcus’ insights will lead us into a virtual tour of the San Diego and Imperial County region as you’ve never experienced it before. We’ll cover a lot of ground in a short amount of time, connecting you to the issues, people, and places defining our region’s future. In three hours, you will leave with heightened understanding of the voices shaping San Diego and Imperial Counties, an up close look at the communities that call our region home, and (likely!) a desire to know more. We’ve got you covered with follow-up deep dive sessions on all topics covered from All In to continue your learning and spark action through 2022.

While we anxiously await the day that we can safely gather in person, the future is happening now – don’t miss the opportunity to be All In for our region.

Reasons to Join us:

  • Hear from national and regional philanthropy experts pushing the edge of the field
  • See our region in a whole new way from the comfort of your pjs
  • Connect with peers via viewing parties, a virtual happy hour, and debrief opportunities
  • Access several months of follow on programming and dig deeper on the topics that speak to you most

Stay tuned as we confirm the regional thought leaders and the discussions they will lead.
