headshot of claudiaThe Summer Institute is just five short weeks away. With space filling up, here are three reasons you should clear your calendar on July 9 and attend the Institute:

number 3It’s your chance to hear and talk with Dr. Manuel Pastor, researcher, author and activist who has been honored for his work in racial equity and economic development. Recognized as a leading demographer, Dr. Pastor will talk about what Ohio’s demographics mean for innovation, racial diversity and philanthropy.

What others say about Dr. Pastor: “With his deep commitments to both activism and academic rigor, he has become a critical translator between philanthropy and social movements.”

number 2It’s your once-a-year chance to learn with other smart Ohio philanthropy colleagues. At this year’s Summer Institute, every session is a deep dive that has you exploring concepts and then putting them into practice. In each interactive session you will gather insights into strategies and how to implement them when you return to your office.

What others say about the learning: “It’s been less than a week back at work and I’ve already used and shared some of the insight and knowledge that I gained through engaged sessions.”

number 1It’s your chance to network, network, network! Whether it’s at the reception on The Blackwell’s Terrace, during meals or in between sessions, you’ll have plenty of time to build your connections with philanthropy peers from across the state.

What others say about the networking: “A great opportunity for us to mingle with colleagues and friends who perform the same type of work and have the same desire to help those in need and build a stronger community base.”

Read about our other expert-led sessions at the Institute. (10 sessions led by 24 national experts!)

I hope to see you at the Summer Institute! For more information and to register, please visit
