Leading Together 2021

Early Registration Now Open!
June 14-17 | A Virtual Experience

Early Registration for Leading Together 2021 is now open for Council Members! Leading Together remains the destination to engage in transformative conversations about how philanthropy can do our part to create a better world and earn the trust necessary to create real change. From June 14-June 17, 2021, the Council will bring together foundation and philanthropic leaders to connect on the critical issues concerning the sector.

The conference will feature sessions you won’t find anywhere else with a focus on Seeking Common Ground, Advancing Equity, and Raising the Bar.

  • Seeking Common Ground sessions will spark conversations that challenge philanthropy to bridge divides, explore unlikely partnerships and engage with different points of view.
  • Advancing Equity sessions will feature diverse voices on issues such as inclusive economic prosperity, racial injustice, income equality and values aligned philanthropy.
  • Raising the Bar sessions will focus on sharing the best practices, resources, and tools for philanthropic leaders to be agents of change in their organizations and communities.

Early Registration has been extended. Council on Foundations Members who register by March 15 will receive a discounted rate of $199, after which the rate is $279.  Registration for Non-Members is $399 and will not be open until early March.
