2019 Liberty Bank Foundation Conference
A lot has been said in the last few years about diversity, equity, and inclusion. Now it’s time to act. Nonprofits and funders are invited to attend our event where we’ll envision our hopes for the sector 20 years from now, and explore how to tear down the barriers that stand in the way of achieving them. We promise you a conversation that will be thought-provoking, insightful, uplifting, and fun!
