IDEA in Action – Navigating Fundraising Challenges

presented by Love Odih Kumuyi, Founder/Culture Engineering Officer at Unsiloed

All things equity, diversity, and inclusion are currently caught in a storm. Commitments may flounder due to public pushback in the Court of Public Opinion. While this seems to be the dominant narrative, those committed to the work are still doing the work. In this interactive fundraising workshop, professionals will explore the current state of IDEA, engage in discussion on how to integrate values for inclusion without muscling or smuggling it in, and learn about a systems approach to equity and inclusion in fundraising.

Learning outcomes

This interactive workshop will combine insights, facilitated discussions, and better practices. Participants will have the opportunity to:

  • Learn: Gain foundational knowledge of IDEA and its impact on fundraising.
  • Discuss: Share real-world challenges and brainstorm solutions for navigating pushback.
  • Practice: Develop communication skills to address concerns from donors and sponsors.
  • Collaborate: Explore strategies for integrating IDEA into existing fundraising practices.

About the Presenter: 

Love Odih Kumuyi, Founder/Culture Engineering Officer at Unsiloed

As an attorney and Equity, Inclusion and Justice scholar-practitioner, Love founded Unsiloed with a singular mission: To help organizations make psychological safety and human-rights part of everyday culture, for everyone. As a two-time immigrant she understands first hand the challenges of being ‘othered’ and is keen on using creating spaces that feel accessible. Formerly the Associate Dean at Cornell University, Love worked in dynamic capacities with corporate organizations, including the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), U.S. Peace Corps, law firms, and universities across the globe. With 15 years of interdisciplinary experience utilizing law, policy, education, and research to help organizations engineer inclusion, she believes with 100% certainty: When we create workplaces where it’s not too expensive for employees to be themselves, innovation abounds and everyone wins. Love’s superpowers are peacebuilding and conflict transformation. She’s passionate about driving systemic change with empathy, fostering learning and facilitating dialogue — all in an effort to redefine human relations, promotes inclusion, and build psychologically safe workplaces where people can thrive. She is an adjunct professor at New York University, certified Psychological safety trainer and coach, mediator and restorative justice practitioner.
