November 4 - November 6, 2019 All Day
We invite you to join us for the Inclusive Economies working group’s first annual meeting November 4-6 in Cleveland, Ohio.
Even as income inequality and the economic effects of racism are elevated to the center of national debate, the onus of addressing the inequities of our current economy in large part continues to fall to local leaders. For funders, this raises a host of strategic challenges. What role can philanthropy play in mobilizing local assets to expand and extend opportunity to marginalized communities? How can funders ensure that economic growth translates into economic opportunity and access? And, how does philanthropy build local capacity and power to dismantle the racist attitudes and systems that have prevented people and communities of color from prospering?
We’ll tackle these questions and more at the first annual meeting of TFN’s Inclusive Economies working group in Cleveland, Ohio. This inaugural convening provides a dedicated forum for place-based funders to meet and learn from peers, thought leaders, and local residents; share work in progress; and build a shared agenda for learning and action.
