Join us on 24 November for the first in our series of WINGSForum online events!
The in-person WINGSForum will shift from November 2020 to 2021, and a series of virtual experiences will fill the gap!
The first event in our Virtual Summit is on Power and the Role of Philanthropy and will take place on 24 November at 13.00 UTC. Be sure you don't miss out and register to join us now!
Join us to explore how the philanthropic field needs to address and transform imbalanced power dynamics within the sector and beyond, many of which continue to be impacted by the ongoing pandemic. Hear from a panel of thought leaders on how power plays out in the philanthropic and nonprofit world, and what the strategies and practices are that can begin to shift these dynamics.
The open-access plenary session will be followed by exclusive workshops for WINGS members. These will have up to 10 participants from across the WINGS network. There will be workshops covering both Eastern and Western time zones.
This is the first in our Virtual Summit series, with more open plenary sessions taking place in early 2021. Save the dates and subscribe for updates to keep up to date with our activities.
