Tobias Troll Director of EDGE Funders Alliance Europe

Guppi played an important and constructive role in the organisation of the EDGE Funders Alliance global conference ‘Re-organising Power for Systems Change’, which brought together 270 funders and activists in Barcelona in April 2017. She was active member of the conference planning committee and skilfully facilitated sessions at the conference. She brought a pronounced racial justice and feminist perspective into the discussions, and helped to shape the deliberations around questions of power and privilege, which was particularly important in a funders environment
