CARE Power Panel Presented by UPS

A collage of past female panelists on CARE's Tuesday Talks and Power Panel series.

Join us for CARE Power Panel Presented by UPS, our talk series focusing on emergency response and disaster relief locally and globally as we discuss possible solutions to our ever-changing world.

CARE Power Panel Presented by UPS is our talk series about relevant and compelling topics. These panel conversations feature key stakeholders including elected officials, CARE experts, funders, and grassroots organizers. Through these events, CARE looks to highlight expertise from Black and Indigenous communities of color.

In our last conversation, we were grateful for the range of perspectives from our speakers Bianca Oviedo, Heidi Lum and Dr. Kim Griswold, and the amazing music provided by DJ Sofa that offered us a chance to relieve some stress! You can view past discussion recordings below.

Our next talk will be in February. We look forward to seeing you there!
