The CCF Rewind
Hope everyone is having a good start to September so far. We can’t believe summer is winding down. (We also can’t believe it’s been over a year since we launched CCF!) This week, we have a super inspiring essay as well as a video of our anniversary event for ya!
By Meenakshi Das, fundraising consultant
You know that when you see Meena’s byline on an essay that it’s going to be something inspiring and uplifting — and she sure didn’t disappoint. In her latest, Meena talks about the ways we spin around self-defeating narratives in our heads and how these narratives affect how we feel about our identities. So many of us don’t see ourselves as leaders because we have certain ideas (that are certain racialized) about what traits make up a leader. Meena is here to give us a wake up call and pep talk all at once. First: we are already amazing leaders. Second: We need to be better at owning this!

We want to send out a big thanks to everyone who took part in CCF’s anniversary celebration. We’ve gotten a number of requests to make a recording of the event available for those who could not attend. Please view an edited version of our event on our YouTube channel (we trimmed out breakout sessions)!
By the way, we are always looking for new voices and new perspectives for our Content Hub! Check out our editorial guidelines if you’re interested in contributing!
