About this series

Whether you’re part of a nonprofit organization, a funding organization, or just interested in philanthropy, the Johnson Center is here to offer support and insights, and to learn from your experiences.

Grab your lunch and join us on Zoom every third Thursday of the month for our FREE discussion series! This series provides you with an opportunity to meet different members of the Johnson Center’s team and to be part of a casual, facilitated discussion around a theme or key question.

NOTE: Starting in March, this series will have a new name! Keep an eye out for free, monthly sessions of our Open Door Series (formerly Lunch with the Johnson Center).

This month’s topic: “Recruitment: Diversity in your staff and board”

This session will be led by Tiana Hawver and Juan Olivarez to explore and learn from each other how organizations in the sector are recruiting and retaining more Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) staff and board members.
