What We're Watching: Philanthropy's Role in Creating a Just World: Centering People and Communities in Your Giving
From Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors: Philanthropy has the power to create meaningful and lasting change in the world. However, to do so, we must center people and communities in our work. Join us for the first session of our webinar series where we will explore the importance of centering the voices of impacted communities in philanthropy as we work towards a just world.
In this session, as we delve into the critical role of philanthropy in addressing social and environmental issues, we will focus on the need to listen to and learn from communities who are impacted by these issues, and how to prioritize their voices in our decision-making processes. We will explore ways to center these voices, including community engagement, partnership-building, and empowering community-led solutions, among other tactics.
We will also examine the importance of intersectionality in our philanthropic work. We will explore how issues of race, gender, class, and other forms of oppression intersect to create systemic barriers to change. We will discuss ways to address these barriers, including investing in organizations and movements led by impacted communities.
By the end of this session, you will gain a deeper understanding of the importance of centering people and communities in philanthropy. You will learn practical steps you can take to center these voices in your work and create meaningful and lasting change in the world. Join us for this inspiring and thought provoking session and be part of a community of like-minded philanthropists committed to creating a more just world.
