Organizations embarking on transformation processes often grapple with questions about the work they are engaging in and where they aspire to land as it relates to advancing change. These common questions can present moments of tension or stuckness, for organizations, staff, boards and equity practitioners, whether in identifying the greatest power levers, unaddressed challenges, or navigating fear or misalignment that can impede larger transformation journeys.

In the new publication, A Change Management & Deep Equity Primer: What, Why, How & Nuance, from Sheryl Petty, Founder & Principal of Movement Tapestries, developed in partnership with GEO, Sheryl explores the complex and multidimensional support and tools social sector organizations, systems and other change makers need to further their understanding of and capacity to advance Equity-Embedded Change Management.

Join  for a conversation between Sheryl Petty, Kathryn O’Neal-Dunham, CEO of Philanthropy New York, and Marcus Walton, CEO of GEO, to hear an overview of this new resource and gain insight into their perspectives on the philanthropic sector’s efforts to advance equity-embedded transformation. They will also discuss how equity is often left out of change management processes and the progress they hope to see for the sector. Register to join the conversation to hear these valuable perspectives on the field and have the opportunity to ask questions and engage in dialogue with these leaders.
