In this complimentary SSIR Live! program you will:
- Learn how to make the case within your organization for a strong and intentional commitment to racial equity.
- Develop an understanding of effective approaches to impact investing that help drive equitable outcomes.
- Explore case studies from leading organizations that have successfully aligned their efforts with their positive intentions around racial equity.
Racial inequity is inextricably connected to almost every social challenge that philanthropy seeks to address. Quality healthcare, affordable housing, access to better education, participation in a fair economy—these are just some of the challenges that disproportionately affect people of color and are central to the mission-driven work undertaken by foundations.
But how can foundations that are committed to impact investing also advance diversity, equity, and inclusion? What role should foundations play in ensuring that racial equity is at the heart of the impact investing movement? In this SSIRLive! program, three foundation leaders will explore these pressing questions and more. These expert speakers will explain their organizations’ efforts to advance racial equity—inherently tied to diversity and inclusion—into their institutions and impact investing practices. They will detail the subsequent positive outcomes in the social sector space that have resulted from these strategic efforts. This webinar is part of the “How Foundations Are Using Impact Investing to Advance Racial Equity,” a online in-depth series from Stanford Social Innovation Review.
The program is designed for philanthropy professionals and other impact-investing practitioners who seek to understand how organizational goals on racial equity inform impact investments. The audience will leave this SSIRLive! webinar with inspiration and practical strategies for the best ways to apply these insights to their work as part of their organizational journey.
