Join your colleagues for a conversation over lunch with Tamir Novotny, executive director of Emerging Practitioners in Philanthropy (EPIP). EPIP is a national network of emerging philanthropic change makers* who strive for excellence and equity in the practice of philanthropy. While this program is geared toward emerging philanthropy professionals, all members are welcome to attend. Tamir Novotny will discuss EPIP's work -- their reports (like their recent report, “Dissonance & Disconnects: How entry and mid-level foundation staff see their futures, their institutions, and their field”), their statewide chapters across the country, and the strategies they are using to build a more just, equitable, and sustainable world. Lunch will be provided.
* EPIP’s members tend to have 10 or fewer years of experience in the philanthropic sector.
Tamir Novotny, Executive Director, Emerging Practitioners in Philanthropy
Tamir became Executive Director of EPIP in 2015, following a three-year engagement with the organization. Starting as a chapter leader in New York, Tamir went on to join EPIP’s national team, supporting chapters in the Northeast and advising the national leadership. Prior to his appointment, Tamir held multiple positions over nine years at Living Cities, a philanthropic collaborative focused on improving the lives of low-income urban residents. There, he developed and led portfolios in areas including housing, smart growth, and civic technology. Most recently, Tamir developed and launched the City Accelerator, a $3,000,000 initiative to speed the spread of municipal innovation, and the Civic Tech and Data Collaborative, a partnership to harness the power of technology and data to address issues like criminal justice and youth employment. Tamir received a Masters in Public Administration from New York University in 2008 and a BA, magna cum laude from NYU in Metropolitan Studies in 2006.
