Reimagine Philanthropy Part II: Economic Justice and the Social Determinants of Health, Work, and Wellbeing
Maryland Philanthropy Network invites you to continue the conversation we started at our 2020 Annual Meeting | Reimagine Philanthropy through a series of events designed as opportunities for transformative change. As our network seeks to further understand the critical shifts philanthropy is being asked to make, we are exploring key topics to shift perspectives, cede power, and collaborate with communities to heal and achieve greater equity.
This next conversation in our Reimagine Philanthropy series will explore the topic of Economic Justice and the Social Determinants of Health, Work, and Well-being. Through the lens of trust-based philanthropy, our speakers will share the stories of how they have grappled with the need for transformative philanthropic practices that include partnerships with communities to address root causes of disparate health and employment outcomes.
As a member of the Steering Committee of the Trust-Based Philanthropy Project and leader of the Headwaters Foundation, Brenda Solorzano will talk about efforts to change the power dynamic between funder and grantee, providing examples of how deep engagement with communities can lead to shared solutions. As a further example of new ways of thinking about philanthropy, Yanique Redwood will tell her story of how the Consumer Health Foundation started with a focus on healthcare and, through deep engagement with communities and root cause analysis, has shifted to a strategy of racial, economic, and social justice.
The panel will be moderated by Nikki Highsmith Vernick of the Horizon Foundation.
This program is for Maryland Philanthropy Network members and invited guests only.
