How do we decentralize whiteness and address systemic racism and oppression in philanthropy? What are the embedded biases and inequitable systems that impact our work and relationships in the communities we serve? And are organizational practices advancing — or impeding — racial equity and justice work in our own institutions?

While many foundations consider equity core to their philanthropic mission, we know that advocating for equitable and just practices can prove to be a fraught process.

Join us for the next installment of TFN’s Power Forward webinar series for a frank conversation about the sector’s willingness to address structural racism and its impact on organizational practice.  Power for Just Practices: Race, Privilege and Philanthropy, which takes place at 2 p.m. ET May 15, brings together a panel of national experts and funder leaders for an introspective dialogue about sharing power, rethinking internal practices and building equitable community strategies.
