Friday Morning Refresh

Current conditions continue to place enormous demands on us.

Now, as always, we are each asked to bring clarity, generosity, and courage to our efforts to heal, reimagine, and rebuild toward large-scale change. We are invited to make space, in the midst of urgency, to notice more, re-vision priorities, reconnect with…

Nearly half of all American households have experienced serious financial trouble as a result of the COVID 19 pandemic.  Even prior to the pandemic, nearly 40 percent of Americans did not have enough savings on hand to cover a $400 emergency.  We also know that the economic impacts were not felt equally with individuals working in low-wage jobs, Black and Latinx workers and women being disproportionately impacted. One time financial assistance was helpful, but not enough. Since the pandemic national…

Corporate Philanthropy Session

A company's commitments to diversity, equity, and inclusion within its corporate social responsibility can significantly differentiate its brand among community members and prospective employees.
