Talking to Funders About DEI Work

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This panel discussion will explore issues of systemic racism and structural oppression as it relates to the philanthropic ecosystem. Here we explore the question: how can organizations led by and primarily serving different BIPOC community members expect to be liberated by the same whyte dollars that got them into this situation? It will also explore some practical steps participants can take to build their philanthropic tribe in an increasingly digital landscape.  

This Face to Face 2021 session will include live ASL interpretation and Zoom Closed Captioning.
