    Hi all! I just registered for this free virtual panel discussion happening next week on the 21st at 10 am Pacific and thought it would be of interest to fellow NOVAA members. 

    Join Points of Light and Morehouse College on April 21 at 1 p.m. Eastern for our next conversation, “Race and Equity in Volunteering: From Lived Experience to Leadership.” Volunteers support and represent work in every aspect of our social fabric, providing essential support, enriching our communities and cultural life, and taking action where change is needed. However, volunteerism can also reinforce patterns of power and privilege that uphold systemic racism. In this conversation, our audience will learn how to recognize volunteer activities and patterns that perpetuate inequities, how to thoughtfully engage community, and ultimately, how volunteer engagement, when designed well, can be a part of supporting an end to racial inequity and social injustice.

    • Jerome Tennille, Manager of Social Impact & Volunteerism, Marriott International
    • Lisa Simpson, Senior Advisor, Strategy & Relationships, AARP Office of Volunteer Engagement
    • Sue Carter Kahl, President, Sue Carter Kahl Consulting
