Grant-making with an Intersectional Lens
The current economic system and laws were not designed for Black people, indigenous peoples, people of color, women, people who identify as LGBTQI, and migrants to thrive. As we consider the implications of this economic system, and philanthropy as a sector within that system, what will it take to truly integrate a historical and intersectional analysis in our grant-making of the economic policies that have led to systemic poverty, structural racism, and patriarchy in order to resource the movement to shift power and seed change?
Over the last few years, Funders for a Just Economy (FJE) has worked on developing an intersectional analysis and an understanding of the underlying root causes of systemic poverty and economic discrimination. This webinar will feature Alex Delvalle (Groundswell Fund), Holly Bartling (General Service Foundation), and Julia Beatty (Borealis Philanthropy) as they tell the story of their foundations’ journeys to shift the culture and their program strategies to implement an intersectional analysis on race, gender and migration status. Additionally, this webinar will explore Journey Towards Intersectional Grant-Making, FJE's latest report on best practices from leaders in philanthropy.
