Chasing the More Equitable Side of Philanthropy

February 28, 2022
6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

The first confirmed case of COVID 19 arrived in the United States on January 15, 2020. Three months later, the world watched Derick Chauvin kneel on George Floyd’s neck for more than nine minutes, killing this unarmed civilian in broad daylight.

These twin pandemics woke up the foundation world. A pouring out of philanthropic dollars began flowing to Black-led community organizations, fueling BlackLivesMatter and the like. Support for racial justice and equity now is the call. While the outpouring is appreciated, where do we go from here? Are we on the brink of a movement? Or is this just a moment? Join our moderator, Bithiah Carter, and five of the sharpest advisors on equity in Boston as we explore this phenomenal moment in philanthropy with opening remarks from Klare Shaw.
