COFIE Meeting 1: September

Thursday, September 7, 2023, 9:00 - 11:00 AM

COFIE exists to support, educate and embolden Colorado funders to lead the movement toward inclusivity and equity in philanthropy.

The group serves as a resource to local funders as they challenge their thinking and consider implementing changes within their own organizations regarding inclusiveness and equity. The group provides ideas, information, and educational opportunities to interested parties.

Second, the group serves as a support network for members as they educate themselves about inclusiveness, equity, diversity, and anti-oppression practices. The group offers a confidential, respectful and trusting learning environment for all where ideas can be shared and discussed openly. 

​Gathering for BIPOC-identifying members of COFIE. As part of COFIE work to promote equity in the philanthropic sector, we want to make space specifically for our BIPOC-identifying members to have room to discuss the issues that most impact them. Dr. Dwinita will facilitate this discussion on healing, safety and the continued inequities faced by BIPOC members. RSVP here!

"Valuing and protecting spaces for people of color (PoC) is not just a kind thing that white people can do to help us feel better; supporting these spaces is crucial to the resistance of oppression. When people of color are together, there can be healing. We can reclaim parts of ourselves that have been repressed. We can redefine ourselves and support one another in embracing who we are." - The Arrow
