What does it mean for funders to wield power equitably with all the assets at their disposal? How can they take stock of how much and how well they’re exercising public leadership as advocates, conveners, mission investors, and peer organizers?

Join NCRP, Mission Investors Exchange, and The Funders Network for Smart Growth and Livable Communities for the fourth webinar in our series on the exciting new resource, Power Moves: Your essential philanthropy assessment guide for equity and justice.

Featuring a panel of seasoned leaders, the discussion will explore concrete ways that grantmakers can leverage their public leadership beyond grantmaking to create equitable, catalytic change.

Rodney Foxworth, executive director of BALLE, will moderate a rich conversation with Bina M. Patel, CEO and founder of Saathi Impact Consulting; Kevin Walker, president and CEO of the Northwest Area Foundation; Edie Blakeslee, vice president of grantmaking & community leadership with the Coastal Community Foundation of South Carolina; and Zelalem Adefris, climate resilience director with Catalyst Miami.
