Info Session: Why Building Together 2024 Is the Place to Be

In a society marked by mistrust and division, we at the Council believe philanthropy has an opportunity to show up differently: by seeing our differences as assets, not obstacles, and finding solutions together. That journey begins at our annual sector event, Building Together, happening May 6-9 in Chicago.

Free for Members and Nonmembers

Do you have questions about Building Together 2024? Join us for an info session to hear more about how this new, sector-wide event will teach you the skills to bridge differences in a highly polarized society, with:

  • Amazing speakers like David Brooks, Mónica Guzmán, and Amanda Ripley;
  • Half-day strategy and skill building workshops;
  • Peer-to-peer learning sessions;

We’ll provide more details about what to expect, give an overview of the speakers and content you’ll engage with, and take your questions, including:

  • Who should attend?
  • What’s a practice team? Do I get to choose my own?
  • Do I have to choose sessions in advance?
  • Should we bring a group?
