Reimagine How We Fund Entrepreneurs of Color

With only 4% of philanthropic dollars in the U.S. going to organizations led by people of color, we are at a crossroads where we can either build back better or go back to business as usual. In this meet-up, experts will share insights on ways funders, philanthropists and investors can create meaningful partnerships and pool ideas, resources & skills to serve a higher purpose. The discussion will delve into the structural shift needed to create a new era of advancing equity and shared power.
