Event description

Description

In this year's Black Philanthropy Month conversation we seek to explore and share Black women’s influence in and upon philanthropy around the world, most especially those Black Women leaders who have chosen to intentionally leverage their own wealth, influence and/or privilege for the greater good. Each of the women joining us will share more about their personal path and leadership in shaping their family's legacy in philanthropy. Additionally, Melanie Brown of the Gates Foundation, a Fellow at the Inequalities Institute at the London School of Economics, will also share a bit about her research on Black Women in Philanthropy. Entitled, We Specialize in the Wholly Impossible: Black Women’s Philanthropic Practice the research looks at how Black women across the African diaspora, inside culturally-White philanthropic institutions, are advancing equity and justice - be it across race, gender/sexuality, and/or income.

Joining us for the conversation will be:

  • Melanie Brown, Senior Program Officer, US Policy, Advocacy & Communication, Gates Foundation
  • Renée Joslyn, Executive Director, PowHERful Foundation
  • Katherine Nunnally, Trustee and Executive Director, Smith Family Foundation

The moderator will be Yvonne Moore, Founder and Principal Advisor at Moore Philanthropy
