Common Future has organized this panel with emerging philanthropic leaders that have moved the needle at their institutions (past and present) and utilized their profession to advance racial justice and healing. Our conversation aims to give fodder and spark interest in the attendees who are mid-career foundation staff and are asking what's next, what to do, and who to lean on in moving the field (philanthropy/ racial justice) and their respective careers. The topic in discussion would be: Navigating Entrenched Philanthropic Systems From Within. The audience will come away with kinship and illumination around barriers they might be facing and reference points for how to address the barriers. The panelists have deep-seated philanthropic expertise having been successful in moving agendas within their organization and can offer institutional perspectives from their respective organizations.
The panel will illuminate members of the audience who are meaning-making how to move racial justice awareness and agendas within their institutions and what support systems (relational) and learnings are present in the field that they can adopt.
