Inclusive Economies 2023 Meeting

June 28, 2023 – June 29, 2023 all-day America/New York Timezone

TFN believes that in order for communities to be truly just, sustainable and economically prosperous, we must challenge and confront the power dynamics and structural racism that have historically fostered inequities and informed policies and practices.

Racial and economic equity are fundamental to just and inclusive communities, cities and regions. Both urgent and sustained action are needed to change systems that prevent historically marginalized people from prospering, and address deep and widening disparities in income, wealth, and social outcomes.

Save the date for TFN’s Inclusive Economies 2023 Meeting in Atlanta, Ga. where we will gather to understand how to make communities just, sustainable and economically prosperous.


Stay tuned for updates on speakers, sessions and registration dates!


There is a registration fee of $300 for Members and $400 for non-members to participate in this meeting. For questions regarding group rates please contact Hazel Paguaga at

About Inclusive Economies

TFN’s Inclusive Economies working group brings place-based funders and related partners from across the sector together to build working relationships, advancing understanding of practices and policies that lead to inclusive prosperity and taking joint action that drives the field forward. We apply a three-part focus — race, place and prosperity — to economic growth and development. A particular goal is connecting people and neighborhoods of color to employment and wealth-building opportunities through investment, systems change, and policy reform.

Inclusive Economies launched in 2019, replacing TFN’s Restoring Prosperity in Older Industrial Cities working group. This new group represents a vision of shared, restorative and equitable prosperity in places of all types (urban, suburban, and rural), sizes (neighborhoods, cities, towns, and regions), and market conditions (weak, moderate, and strong).

How can I participate?

TFN working groups and initiatives are open to participation from TFN members and non-members alike. We welcome participation from grantmaking organizations, philanthropy serving organizations, local governments, and infrastructure groups that support funders. If you would like to subscribe to TFN’s Inclusive Economies listserv to receive newsletters and other resources, click here.
