Designing Women: Why Women of Color Hold the Key to True Equity

Join us for a conversation with a group of highly experienced women of color from different sectors within philanthropy and investment who coalesced to create a Design Council, ultimately helping to build the investment strategy of a major foundation. We’ll share both their vision for the future and their practical experience from the present, exploring the aspects of a philanthropic strategy that centers women and girls of color. We’ll share learning that has come about through listening, design, and a laser focus on uncovering the areas of society that have caused the most harm for women and girls of color: economic insecurity and discrimination in investment, narratives, safety and security, and a dismissal of the needs of girls of color.
