From the AAPIP Annual Meeting in New York City:

  • AAPIP moving forward as Peggy Saika shares news. Big change, *amazing* leadership. TY Peg for showing us the way

  • Affinity groups of Council on Foundations share commonalities & strategies – but collaborations need to trickle down more to their members.
  • Minorities on boards – pioneer or token. Need structures to support avoidance of the latter.
