Non-Family Staff

1:30-2:00 pm – Join us 30 minutes early to get comfortable with the platform. The program will begin at 2:00 pm.

Join a conversation with colleagues who are also non-family staff members at family foundations for a discussion on the unique challenges you face in your role as non-family staff. A member-host will offer an initial prompt to get the conversation started in round one, and for the second round, we’ll crowdsource your topic ideas for small-group discussions. Opt-in to share your contact information to continue conversations after the program.

About Virtual Roundtables

These are low-key member conversations that allow you to dig in, share knowledge, and ask about each other’s experiences through small group discussions.

Our hope is that you’ll be open with your peers and able to talk through your unique challenges. And that you’ll leave with a renewed sense of community and peer connections.

This is your space to dig into topics that you are passionate about. Bring your experience to share and your questions to ask of your colleagues.
