Emerging Practitioners in Philanthropy (EPIP), a fiscally-sponsored project of Tides, is a growing community of foundation professionals and other changemakers working to advance equity within and through philanthropy. EPIP's mission is to empower emerging leaders and elevate philanthropic practice to build a more just, equitable, and sustainable world. EPIP has established itself as a leading network for diverse early-and mid-career philanthropic professionals, particularly those who identify as people of color, women, and/or LGBTQ. EPIP's 14 member-led chapters span the country and provide peer-to-peer programs, networking opportunities, and support while serving as platforms for member leadership. National programs like the biannual conference and Philanthropology, coupled with local programming led by EPIP Chapters, connect members to additional support, knowledge, and opportunities.
EPIP envisions a world where people of all identities can live full and prosperous lives, supported by a diverse, equitable, inclusive, and effective philanthropic sector. As an anti-racist and inclusive organization, EPIP is committed to empowering staff to apply an equity lens to their work and champion social justice. EPIP is currently at a critical transition point of internal and external practice, process, and growth. This is an exciting time to influence culture and infrastructure while championing inclusion and equity within the philanthropic sector! To learn more about EPIP, visit https://www.epip.org.
