Join us for an honest conversation–and call to action–for the philanthropy sector to invest more in advocacy to dismantle systemic injustice, and at the same time, support the creative force of entrepreneurship to build dynamic, equitable communities.

Vanessa Daniel, Executive Director of Groundswell Fund, and Messay Derebe, Program Director of the Washington Area Community Investment Fund’s Enterprising Women of Color Center, will share strategies for recreating the power relationships between foundations and the communities they serve in order to achieve long-term impact.

The discussion was informed by the Center for Public & Nonprofit Leadership’s newly released paper, Beyond Window Dressing: A Call for Reform of Private Foundations to Address the Race-based Wealth Gap, written by our Visiting Practitioner, Hannah Hahn.

Beyond Window Dressing: Actions to Eliminate the Race-Based Wealth Gap is part of our year-long “Democracy at Risk” series of conversations, which we are hosting in celebration of the 25th Anniversary of the Center for Public and Nonprofit Leadership. These discussions will inform the next 25 years of the Center’s work with nonprofit, philanthropic and public sector leaders to strengthen our communities, nation and world.
