Philea members have pointed to striving for equality as an urgent issue that must be addressed by philanthropy now and in the coming years.

Rising economic inequality has exacerbated virtually all of the problems philanthropy works on. The most disadvantaged face the worst consequences of global threats such as the Covid-19 pandemic and the climate emergency. And when it comes to guaranteeing all members of society equal rights and opportunities, there is still much work to be done. The sector can use its resources, including its networks, experience and expertise to support equality. Philea aims to facilitate this by highlighting the theme of equality across all of its areas of work to surface new insights and pathways for joint efforts. 

We also pay attention to how equality interacts with Philea’s other 2 cross-cutting focus areas: climate and democracy.
