What if? Reimagining philanthropy – How funders can play a stronger role in advancing racial and social justice
The next What if? Reimagining philanthropy event will take place on 7 June, looking at “How funders can play a stronger role in advancing racial and social justice”.
How can philanthropy tackle some of the structural inequalities and advance racial and social justice shaping contemporary Europe and the world? What if philanthropy centered on communities most harmed by our histories of disparities and injustice? How would power shift? What would solidarity and equity look like? What can we learn from the indigenous communities and the core principles of their giving?
Derek Bardowell, CEO, Ten Years’ Time and author of the soon to be published book “Giving Back: How to Do Good Better”, Ise Bosch, founder and CEO, Dreilinden, and will look at the issue of systemic injustices and how philanthropy can play its role from the investment point of view. Chantelle de Nobrega, Programme Officer, Mama Cash, will provide insights into grantmaking and Laurence Meyer, Racial and Social Justice Lead, the Digital Freedom Fund, will reflect how racial lens can be integrated into the external and internal work.
