On Wednesday, October 21, the League of American Orchestras will present “Women are Now Driving Philanthropy. Are Orchestras Engaging Them?,” a sponsored webinar that is free for League members. The COVID-19 pandemic, economic downturn, and social unrest have left arts nonprofits reeling. One group of donors may offer a lifeline: women. Research shows that women (inclusive of all who identify as women) and their networks give more during times of crisis. This webinar, developed and sponsored by Aspen Leadership Group, will examine how to include all women in ways that resonate with them as orchestras raise funds. Speakers include Marlah Bonner-McDuffie, vice president of development at League of American Orchestras; Anne Johnson, senior consultant and vice president at Aspen Leadership Group; Kathleen Loehr, senior consultant at Aspen Leadership Group and author, Gender Matters: A Guide to Growing Women’s Philanthropy; and Trine Sorensen, donor, board member of the League of American Orchestras and San Francisco Symphony, and former corporate consultant. The webinar takes place on Wednesday, October 21, 2:00 pm Eastern/11:00 am Pacific, and is free for League members. Learn more and register here.
