About the Event
Join us to learn how women are leading the way in philanthropy. Two nationally-renowned speakers, Andrea Pactor and Dianne Chipps Bailey, will share how philanthropy is evolving, women are leading the way, and collective giving groups like ours are changemakers.
Impact Austin Board President Susan Palombo and Executive Director Christina Gorczynski will kick off the program with a warm welcome and exciting Impact Austin news to share. Our first-ever $110,000 Social Innovation Grant (SIG) will be awarded! You won't want to miss the grant finalists' presentations to our members and the big vote.
Next will be an interactive panel discussion "The Changing Face of Philanthropy" featuring Dianne Chipps Bailey (Managing Director, National Philanthropic Strategy Executive, Philanthropic Solutions at Bank of America) and Andrea Pactor (Director, Women's Philanthropy Institute at Indiana University School of Philanthropy) led by Impact Austin member, Simone Talma Flowers (Executive Director, Interfaith Action of Central Texas).
