Keynote Panel on Diversity and Inclusion in Philanthropy

Apra-NW is excited to announce that our keynote for the conference will be a panel discussion on diversity and inclusion in philanthropy, moderated by Elyse Gordon from Philanthropy Northwest. Elyse is the Senior Program Manager focusing on how we can make philanthropy more inclusive, equitable, and transparent. She is always looking for new ways to bring these values to non-profit organizations, donors, boards, and volunteers and we're excited that she has agreed to lead this thought-provoking conversation at the 2019 Apra-NW conference.
