Racial and economic inequality are codified within philanthropy's institutional structure and often perpetuate the very inequities philanthropy tries to eradicate. Edgar Villanueva, Anand Giridharadas and others have taken aim at the philanthropic sector for not doing more to dismantle these disparities and question why, despite the sector's best efforts to address these issues, the problem persists. As philanthropy professionals, what can we do to promote a more diverse, equitable and inclusive sector? How can we start, build and lead efforts that result in real change?


How Decolonizing Wealth Is Challenging Philanthropy to Do Better

3 Lessons Impact Investors Can Learn From 'Winners Take All

Inching Toward Equity

Can place-based grantmaking help turn the tide of inequality?

This program is a Food for Thought conversation hosted by the Committee for Equitable and Inclusive Philanthropy for PNY members to discuss “equity” as a tool to buttress their philanthropic practice and as a lens through which to understand current events. Rather than follow a set agenda, the conversation will be a forum for members to engage in informal, interactive discussion exploring issues of equity and inclusion by analyzing and discussing recent articles, research, editorials, and other media.

Bring your lunch and join your peers at these lively conversations.  Beverages and treats will be provided.

Designed for

All interested funders.
