The Power in Philanthropy - San Diego Grantmakers Annual Conference


Our ability to change the world begins with the power we wield every day, in our work, in our relationships, through the resources we command and our organizational partnerships. Understanding that power – whether it is formal or informal, individual or collective, real or perceived - is key to unleashing it for the greatest possible benefit for our region and the world.

Join San Diego Grantmakers on a day-long journey to examine and re-envision the Power IN Philanthropy. Learn about the evolving nature of power, the sources of your individual power, and ultimately how our organizations and sector can, grow it, share it and more effectively harness power for more impactful philanthropy and a better future for San Diego.

This interactive day will challenge us to confront the ways unconscious bias and practices of exclusion result in our leaving power and influence on the table; how a lack of awareness of power dynamics may result in harm to the communities we aim to serve; the unique ways power ‘shows up’ within an organization and depending on the seat you occupy; and the responsibility we bear - as individuals, organizations and collective philanthropy - to use power to tackle our most pressing challenges.
