CIVIL SOCIETY Civil Society: Preparing the Next Generation of Diverse Leaders Monday, April 27 | 2:00-3:30 pm | Will depart from the hotel at 10:45 a.m. Description: Travel to the East Bay for an interactive session featuring youth and youth related activities, funders, cross-culture perspectives, and varied approaches to advocating for social justice. This session takes place in Oakland, a city with rich culture, tradition and a legacy of leadership on issues related to gender and racial equality and inclusion. It offers an opportunity to witness how local leaders are engaged with youth to improve opportunities to secure their future and prepare them for leadership in the future growth of their region. You’ll explore how significant public/private/ philanthropic collaborations are resulting in measurable progress toward positive outcomes for youth, with an emphasis on young men and women of color. Participants will take public transportation to the East Bay Community Foundation for lunch and conversation led by President and CEO James Head. You’ll hear about innovative partnerships between the Oakland Unified School District, community based organizations, foundations, and corporations on Restorative Justice, as well as how they are improving outcomes for boys and young men of color through the African American Male Achievement Initiative and the Unity Council in their work for Latino boys and young men. Following lunch, participants will visit the dynamic service space of Girl’s Inc. of Alameda County, which provides more than 20 programs to 7,000 girls ages 5 – 18.

HOPE AND OPPORTUNITY IN A DESTABILIZED WORLD SITE SESSIONS #COFAnnual #Philanthropy ECONOMY & FINANCE Creating an Innovative, Vibrant and Inclusive Economic Landscape Monday, April 27 | 11:00 am - 2:30 pm | Will depart from the hotel at 10:40 am Description: Explore La Cocina, a groundbreaking business incubator that supports a growing roster of sustainable small businesses made up of low-income women and immigrant food entrepreneurs. La Cocina (pronounced la co-see-nah, meaning “The Kitchen” in Spanish) was inspired by its current home, San Francisco’s Mission District. This ethnically diverse and economically vulnerable neighborhood thrives in part due to the many small informal businesses that serve the community. You’ll tour La Cocina’s commercial kitchen space and hear from their representatives, a philanthropic supporter, The Women’s Foundation of California, and speak with entrepreneurs who are launching, growing and formalizing successful food businesses. Next you’ll visit restaurant site, El Pípila, for an authentic lunch from Guanajuato, the heart of Mexico, which reflects both entrepreneurial aspiration and delicious cuisine.

You’ll hear from representatives of the Evelyn & Walter Haas, Jr. Fund, Kaiser Permanente, Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy, and the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. The short walking tour will highlight the role of parks as solutions to challenges facing San Francisco and cities across the country – including improving health, creating pathways to leadership for youth, and increasing climate literacy. The outdoor walk is flat, wide, and easy so no special footwear required. Dress for the weather – layers are recommended. sponsored by www.cof.org | Council on Foundations 2015 Annual Meeting 11
