NoVo and Ms. Foundations Support Grantmakers for Girls of Color Funders Convening
The Grantmakers for Girls of Color, suppported by the NoVo and Ms. Foundations, will host a national convening of funders on May 19 in New York City to begin an exploration of the challenges facing girls and young women of color and to create a plan to drive long-term systemic change.
Through a series of panel discussions and break out sessions, this first convening will explore the power and unique challenges facing black young women and girls across the United States.
It is designed as a first step toward a new dialogue and movement among funders to chart what’s needed, create opportunities for collaboration, and articulate a shared vision to shift the philanthropic sector. Learn about the Grantmakers for Girls of Color effort and this convening on its website.
