Building an Inclusive Advancement Operation
Thursday, July 15th, 2021
10:30 AM - 11:30 AM: Breakout 4
Georgetown Day School (GDS) was founded 75 years ago as the first integrated school in Washington, DC and its longstanding commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion is grounded in that history. GDS's Advancement operation reflects that commitment and considers diversity, equity, and inclusion in all its practices. From choosing its words and photos intentionally, to recruiting, engaging, and uplifting its volunteers and staff, to celebrating its diverse community at every turn, GDS is leading the way. Join Advancement leaders Lynn McNair and Lindsey Jacobson in a discussion about not only supporting diversity, equity, and inclusion, but weaving into the fabric of your advancement operation and institution.
