Part of CEP's 20th Anniversary Virtual Learning Sessions

An ongoing pandemic, widespread economic misery, deep political dysfunction, and a national reckoning about structural racism in the United States and elsewhere has roiled our society. In this context, what is philanthropy’s role in supporting the movement for racial justice? Has the broader conversation about race helped to move philanthropy towards more equitable giving practices? What are the key opportunities and challenges of this moment for foundations and donors that seek to give to support racial equity?
 
After a reading from our featured artist, Micah Bournes, please join us for an engaging conversation with:

  • Yolanda Coentro, President & CEO of Institute for Nonprofit Practice
  • Tricia Raikes, Philanthropist & Principal of Raikes Foundation
  • Rashad Robinson, President of Color Of Change
  • Darren Walker, President of Ford Foundation

Moderated by CEP’s Grace Chiang Nicolette, this conversation will take stock of where philanthropy is and where it needs to be to ensure that all communities of color can reach their full potential.
