1:00pm - 2:30pm MFAAP Forum - Moving the Needle on Social Equity: Addressing Poverty, Education and Health in Low Income and Communities of Color
We will honor the recipient of the second annual Gerald K. Smith award. This honor was created to recognize the significant efforts and contributions of a distinguished colleague in the field whose work and grantmaking activities promote the effective and responsive social change in communities of color. In addition we will be joined by Dr. Sherece West, President and CEO of the Winthrop Rockefeller Foundation. She will provide an in-depth dialogue about the work the foundation will be doing in 2013 to address poverty, health and education in low income and communities of color in Arkansas. Dr. West will also offer recommendations on how each individual can play a role on moving the needle towards success in these areas, regardless of their current position and the steps that the Winthrop Rockefeller Foundation has taken that can be applied to your foundation.
