Get a Beer and Undo Nonprofit Power Dynamics Day (GBUNPD)

You're invited to a special Happy Hour in May from Nonprofit With Balls: ANNOUNCEMENT: GET A BEER* AND UNDO NONPROFIT POWER DYNAMICS DAY! Last year, I proposed a day where nonprofits and funders, including foundation trustees, can get a beer or some ice cream together and see each other as human beings, and help to decrease the power dynamics so present in our sector. Several of us took this suggestion seriously, including many really cool foundations. We are calling it the Get a Beer* and Undo Nonprofit Power Dynamics (GBUNPD) Day, which is the best name ever, you will agree. Because power dynamics hurt everyone and make unicorns cry. (*BEER stands for “Beverage to Enhance Equity in Relationships,” and does not have to be alcoholic) There’s only one rule: There cannot be an agenda. Regarding what time, where, who pays for the rounds, whether to dress up in cloaks, etc. that’s up to foundations and nonprofits in each city to figure out. Let’s have thousands of conversations across the globe between funders and nonprofits, because we both do awesome stuff.
