Coming Soon: On Demand Webinars
Our 2020 AHP International Conference is hosting several DEIB-related sessions, which we are excited to share with our members and non-members. Here are some of the sessions we'll be posting.
In Conversation: Attracting, Hiring and Retaining Diverse Philanthropy Professionals
Birgit Smith Burton, Executive Director of Foundation Relations at Georgia Institute of Technology, and founder of AADO
The development profession, including healthcare philanthropy, has often fallen short of the mark in reflecting the diversity of our communities and our donors. Birgit Smith Burton, founder of the African American Development Officers Network (AADO), joins AHP president and CEO Alice Ayres for a conversation about her journey as a fundraiser and how our organizations can not only identify and recruit diverse talent, but create a sense of belonging that enables all staff to thrive.
Preparing for Diversity in Healthcare: Implications for Philanthropy
James Mason, PhD, Consultant
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in Healthcare Fundraising and Volunteer Engagement
Angelique Grant, Phd, Senior Consultant and Vice President of Aspen Leadership Group
At a time when healthcare philanthropy needs real innovation, better strategies, and new ideas in order to serve all constituents, applying better practices in diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) to fundraising and volunteer engagement is a business imperative. It’s a fact: diverse teams in inclusive cultures perform better. This presentation will share strategies on how to apply DEI principles to increase involvement and investment of staff and stakeholders to advance your organization’s impact. The presentation is designed to help healthcare leaders move from awareness of DEI to action and behavioral change.
The overview will include:
- Creating a culture of inclusion and philanthropic partnership
- Recruiting and retaining a diverse team
- Fundraising and volunteer engagement.
The Rainbow Effect: Diversity and Inclusion in Medical Sector Fundraising
Candie Davidson-Goldbronn, Associate Senior Vice President of Children's Hospital Los Angeles
Jan W. Wood, CFRE, President and Chief Development Officer at Anne Arundel Medical Center Foundation
Shirley Knelly, Chief Compliance Officer, Luminis Health
Kevin Chase, Managing Partner at Kevin Chase Executive Search Group
Brad Sears, David Sanders Distinguished Scholar of Law and Policy, Williams Institute at UCLA Law
Diversity and inclusion are often an afterthought when creating strategic fundraising plans, identifying prospective donors, and recruiting volunteers. This session provides a venue to learn fundamental tactics, hear from a senior fundraising executive and their donor who identify as LGTBQI+, sharing their life experience, the process of engagement, and working together.
Healthcare affects all people, so why is it that our boards, donors and volunteer sometimes reflect a more limited demographic? This session will assist learners to think about prospects and volunteers differently and allow attendees to hear directly from the donors and their fundraising partners. The panel will answer questions like “how do you identify LGBTQI+ prospects”, “what it is like to be one of the few openly LGBTQI+ philanthropists at your hospital”, and “how do you navigate within donor circles and with the staff”.
