Generous Futures: Black Voices Leading

What does the future of charitable giving look like? Through a series of panel discussions we will explore the struggles, politics and possibilities within the charitable sector. Drawing on the diverse voices of philanthropists and community leaders, Generous Futures aims to shed a new light on equity and belonging in Canada.

This panel will explore the critical role of Black leadership in the future of charitable giving. Panelists will draw on their unique perspectives and experiences to speak about the importance of investing in Black-led businesses, supporting Black voices in boardrooms, and giving to Black-focused initiatives to affect meaningful change.
