On December 8th, our President Maria Pesqueira, along with John Palfrey of MacArthur Foundation and Nicole Taylor of Silicon Valley Community Foundation, participated in “The President’s Forum on Racial Equity in Philanthropy” panel discussion, hosted by Keecha Harris & Associates and Grantmakers for Effective Organizations.
In this virtual roundtable, the panel discussed:
- The implications of the 2020 election for philanthropy toward more racially equitable grantmaking
- How funders can support the transformative change that is needed in this moment
- What philanthropy’s role is in addressing systemic racism and how it can use its power, beyond grantmaking
- How their organizations have changed as a result of the year 2020 and what lies ahead in 2021
