Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in Philanthropy | Part 2

Join the Foundation in this virtual event as we continue the conversation from last year’s webinar, “Debunking the 'New and Emerging' Myth of BIPOC Philanthropy.” Our panelists will stretch beyond the ways we can engage and steward donors of color, and talk more on how we are currently working to dismantle Eurocentric philanthropic systems to make them more inclusive for all.

This event is for our nonprofit endowment fundholders.
