On February 14th PFF Trustee David Perrin and President Laura McCargar participated in the National Center for Family Philanthropy webinar “Balancing Power Dynamics” on bridging power divides in philanthropy and building collaborative relationships. As discussed in the webinar, power exists in all facets of philanthropic and nonprofit work; when acknowledged and held with responsibility, accountability, and intent, power can be used to advance the work of staff, grantee partners, and philanthropic boards collectively. On this webinar, David, Laura, and other foundation representatives discuss how they hold and share power in their work. During the webinar, Laura and David both highlighted the importance of doing the “internal work” to explore and interrogate power dynamics.
