Traditional media and social media alike have been flooded with stories of people of color being targeted as they live, work, study, and otherwise navigate “white spaces.” Are these encounters a mere growing pain as society becomes more equitable and inclusive or a sign of regression? How does such targeting show up in more subtle ways in our everyday lives and work? How can we harness the benefits of creating and holding space specifically for mixed company? Is there a role that philanthropy can play to create and protect mixed space?
Links to articles exploring people of color in spaces and placemaking that centers the experiences of people of color are below for your reference.
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.
