You asked and we are answering – GAIN POWER is starting a new series designed to get you the advice you crave and the networking you need. That’s why we are launching a weekly Career Advice and Networking series – this is an open meeting where you can ask questions of progressive movement veterans and meet a range of people at different points in their careers. We’ll make space for open conversation and do some fun games to help you branch out and meet new people.
This week’s guest is Eric Marshall, Principal, Grassroots Solutions.
Eric is a capacity builder and an expert in democracy and philanthropic engagement with a deep understanding of both national and state-based civic engagement infrastructure as well as how organizations turn movements into power. He delivers strategy development, implementation and facilitation expertise to organizations and institutions that helps teams plan and work together effectively. Eric also provides philanthropic advising to foundations and donors to help cut through the noise and identify clear needs, gaps and opportunities.
Prior to joining Grassroots Solutions, Eric was a leader in the philanthropic, civic engagement, and voting rights fields. He served as the executive director of the Funders’ Committee for Civic Participation, created State Voices’ national voting rights and election administration program, and led the national Election Protection Coalition and was at the forefront of building the state election reform movement at the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law.
When Eric isn’t working, he is spending time with his adorable children and incredible wife, enjoying the outdoors of Austin, TX, working out, and watching Boston sports.
This event is free but we do ask if you are able to become a member of GAIN Power to help us host more interesting events like this.
