Postponed: Decolonizing Wealth Book Discussion

Wednesday, January 08, 2020, 12:00 - 1:30 PM

This event has been postponed and will be rescheduled at a later date. We apologize for any inconvenience.

On November 13, Maryland Philanthropy Network convened more than 100 community leaders for deep conversation with Edgar Villanueva author of Decolonizing Wealth: Indigenous Wisdom to Heal Divides and Restore Balance. Edgar outlined his provocative analysis of the dysfunctional colonial dynamics at play in philanthropy and finance and offered a prescription for restoring balance and healing our divides.

To continue this discussion, please join us for a peer conversation about the book, Decolonizing Wealth and reflect on Mr. Villanueva’s remarks. For this conversation, we’ll mostly focus on Part One of the book, “Where it Hurts” and the themes outlined within.

We’ll gauge interest in how to best continue discussions, particularly around Part Two, “How to Heal” and actions philanthropists can take individually and collectively to “use money as medicine” to foster healing, connection and belonging.

This program is for Maryland Philanthropy Network members only. Lunch will be served.
