NYC: Black Women In Philanthropy

Join Moore Philanthropy in celebrating Black Philanthropy Month 2019 as they seek to explore and share Black women’s influence in and upon philanthropy around the world, especially Black women leaders who have chosen to intentionally leverage their wealth, influence and/or privilege for the greater good. Panelists will share more about their personal path and leadership in shaping their family's legacy in philanthropy. 

Additionally, Melanie Brown of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, a Fellow at the Inequalities Institute at the London School of Economics, will share 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.
