We need radical change to ensure economic security for all. Now is the time for philanthropy to lead the way by intentionally investing in structural change using an equity lens. Economic equity calls for addressing the structural racism and sexism embedded in our economy from its beginning. A just economy aims to remedy trans-generational financial disparities for women and Black, Latinx, Indigenous, and Asian people. Change also involves collaborating across all sectors and listening deeply to community leaders.
- What does it look like to invest in solutions that create infrastructure for economic resilience for all or dismantle what perpetuates inequity?
- How have funders applied an equity lens to investing in systems change, and what have they learned?
Earlier this year, AFN showcased our new Relief to Resilience: Reimagining Investments framework that featured funding strategies to support equitable wealth building and economic mobility now and over the long-term. Join us for a follow-up conversation with leading funders – The Annie E. Casey Foundation, The California Wellness Foundation, and the Con Alma Health Foundation – to hone in on systemic solutions for economic equity and dignity.
Designed with funders in mind, this webinar is open to all audiences.
We want your help in shaping the conversation. Please submit your questions in advance when you register.
