Developing the Native Workforce – Understanding Indian Country and the Role of Philanthropy

September 28 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

This first webinar on Thursday, September 28 at 3:00 pm ET will provide attendees with a broad overview of Native nations and communities (“Indian Country”); how the self-determined development of the Native workforce advances overarching Native cultural, social, and economic imperatives; the role of philanthropy in supporting and scaling Native workforce development efforts; and how philanthropic organizations can develop partnerships with Native workforce development entities that expand and enhance the quality, accessibility, and cultural relevance of workforce development programs designed by and for Native people. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions of leading Indian Country experts about how they can enhance their organizations’ ability to engage Native nations and communities in ways that empower the effectiveness of self-determined Native workforce development initiatives. Guest speakers include Natasha Hale, Project Manager for Workforce Grantmaking in Native Nations and Communities, Alvin Warren, Vice President of Career Pathways & Advocacy at LANL Foundation, and Michael Johnson, Chief Strategy Officer at IllumiNative.

Please note that participation in this Workforce Matters event is open to grantmaking members only.
