What is Lunch with Leaders?
Lunch with Leaders is a unique leadership development program aimed at fostering the next generation of philanthropic sector leaders in corporate, private, and family foundations.
The program creates relationships, establishes a learning cohort and enables knowledge transfer among new grantmakers who have been in the field less than 5 years, and experienced grantmakers who have been in the field more than 5 years.
How does it work?
New grantmakers and a rotating cast of experienced grantmakers meet for an informal lunch, coordinated by the Gateway Center for Giving. Each lunch has four spots for new grantmakers and is hosted by one experienced grantmaker. Meeting in small groups encourages informal, yet robust conversation around relevant topics. A "trigger" article is sent out in advance, which helps prompt discussion.
Who should attend?
GCG Members (FREE) and Non-Member Grantmakers ($50.00).
Lunch with Leaders featuring Vanessa Cooksey is now full.
Please email Clare Brewka to be placed on the waiting list.
