Trust-based philanthropy creates a space to explicitly address the inherent power imbalances between foundations and nonprofits. As community foundations continue to shift power at the local level, trust-based philanthropy has a role to play in adapting our practices and policies.
Join this session with expert Ruth Mojeed from The Inclusion Project to learn how a trust-based can have an impact, the steps your community foundation can take and become equipped with the tools to have sometimes challenging conversations.
What you will learn:
- Learn the importance of centering inclusion in philanthropy through a trust-based approach
- Evaluate the changes needed to implement in order to establish a more inclusive, accountable and transparent organization
- Discuss how community foundations can navigate challenging conversations around inclusion and diversity in the workplace
