Decolonizing Philanthropy: An obligation to do better
Join Wagner Philanthropy for a panel discussion about the inherent power imbalances in the philanthropic sector. Learn from practitioners in the field who will discuss different philanthropic approaches including concepts such as “decolonizing philanthropy,” a phrase introduced and explored by activist and writer Edgar Villanueva, trust-based philanthropy, and community-centric approaches. These alternatives reimagine how philanthropic organizations and philanthropists can reckon with their privilege and create a more successful and effective system.
Moderated by Professor Molly Schultz Hafid, this panel will feature:
- William Cordery, Principal - Freedom Futures, Consultant - Leverage Philanthropic Partners
- M. Scott Frank, Executive Director - Cofounder, The InteRoots Initiative
- Shaady Salehi, Executive Director, Trust-Based Philanthropy Project
This event is presented by Wagner Philanthropy and the Wagner Diversity Council (WDC) and is a part of the Powering Structural Change conference (more conference info here).
