So We Have a Data Guide. Now What? 
A Case Study on Implementing the Apra DEI Data Guide at Your Organization

In the summer of 2021, Apra published its long anticipated DEI Data Guide. While many in the prospect development industry were excited to receive its timely and important guidance, some of us were wondering how to implement the recommendations it outlined. In this presentation, Denise will offer a case study on how she and the Prospect Intelligence team at UNICEF USA have made use of the guide to develop a policy for managing constituent identity data and to make policy suggestions for the larger Philanthropy division it supports.

Note: Familiarity with the Apra DEI Data Guide is encouraged but not required. Time will be allotted for discussion so questions are welcomed!

Denise Harris currently serves as Manager, Prospect Intelligence at UNICEF USA. In her role, she supports the organization’s institutional revenue goals through prospect identification, research solutions and strategy facilitation. She’s also leading her team’s efforts to enhance ethical policies for management of identity-related constituent data while serving as a thought partner for how these policies are adopted by frontline philanthropy staff. Before joining UNICEF USA, Denise honed her prospect research and relationship building skills in higher education philanthropy. She holds an M.A. in US history and continues to study the experiences of Black women around the world.  She also identifies as a life-long learner and has recently taken up swimming, quad-skating and apparel sewing. On any given weekend you can find her reading, eating a prosciutto and gruyere croissant from her favorite local bakery, or realizing her “Renaissance Woman” persona with a trip to a new city or country.   

Date:  Wednesday, February 23

Time:  12PM - 1PM PST
