Equity in Philanthropy multi-day special program – From Root to Ritual
From Root to Ritual: A Conversation about the systemic & historical characteristics of inequity in Philanthropy (Abolition, Reform, Expansion – Session 1)
This session will unearth the systems that root philanthropy and fundraising by grappling with history, intention, and impact. We will discuss philanthropy’s role in ensuring that equity, diversity, inclusion, access, and belonging exists within the nonprofit sector, and whether the practices of philanthropy and fundraising have evolved with society. Participants will gain clarity on viewing the philanthropic ecosystem through an equity lens and understand where fundraisers can disrupt long standing (and potentially inequitable) rituals that exist in philanthropy today.
About the series:
We are excited to bring you this special program, which will explore the past, present, and future of the philanthropic ecosystem and the threads of inequities that continue to plague it. This series includes three distinct yet interconnected sessions that will take you on an exploration of equitable philanthropy. With three diverse and experienced facilitators as your guides, you will consider various aspects of the philanthropic ecosystem. Which aspects are irreparably broken and need to be abolished? Which could benefit from reform? Where is healthy and equitable philanthropy flourishing, and how can these philosophies and practices be shared, expanded, and fostered?
