There is a growing call for nonprofits to build a more equitable sector, but many nonprofit leaders are unsure where to start. Join the Fieldstone Leadership Network San Diego for a unique opportunity to learn experientially, reflect personally, and engage in communal conversations about equity in the birthplace of the Civil Rights Movement.
This retreat visits historic sites to ground and inspire brave conversations about how our past informs issues of today and the future. It draws on Circle of Trust principles to create time and space for questions about our own roles in advancing social justice within the San Diego nonprofit community and beyond.
The four-day experience includes time to visit and reflect on historic sites ranging from the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma to the National Memorial for Peace and Justice in Montgomery. It will support nonprofit leaders in identifying or deepening their own practices of equity and inclusion.
