This program is a part of Philanthropy New York’s Reframing Philanthropy Series, following its 40th Year Annual Meeting:
- September 19 - Rob Reich vs. Phil Buchanan: Is Giving By The Wealthy A Good Thing?
- October 8 - Edgar Villanueva: Why Indigenous Wisdom Is Essential to Strengthening Philanthropy
- November 6 - Judy Belk: Moving Diversity, Equity and Inclusion From Buzzwords To Integrated Practice
Reframing Philanthropy is a program series examining current criticism and future opportunities for the field.
Are institutions that control wealth inherently broken? Are wealth and the systems by which it's distributed causing separation and hurt in our communities? How can wealth be used as a powerful tool of healing, love and belonging?
Please join us for a conversation with Edgar Villanueva (Author, Decolonizing Wealth: Indigenous Wisdom to Heal Divides and Restore Balance), as he shares his analysis of the dysfunctional racial and colonial dynamics at play in philanthropy and finance. Using his own personal experiences as a Native American grantmaker and foundation executive, Edgar will offer a prescription for restoring balance and healing our divides using the guidance of indigenous wisdom. Fellow PNY Member Phil Li, President of Robert Sterling Clark Foundation, will moderate the discussion.
- The meaning behind "decolonizing wealth"
