Register for a webinar imagining the future of power-sharing

Apr 02, 2024

Join us for a webinar on May 2, 12:00 ET exploring power-sharing with authors and organizations featured in the Stanford Social Innovation Review series Philanthropy and Power. This special supplement, organized by Chorus Foundation, brings together many brilliant minds from our sector, and raises provocative questions we want to dig deeper into.

As philanthropy increasingly adopts participatory practices, we interrogate what it means to truly share power, how far can the various modes of this living practice lead us, and just what is possible when power-sharing is done well? You’ll hear new perspectives and ask questions you may be holding. Let’s explore together how to live into our best potential as folks in the complicated business of redistributing wealth. 

Kindle Project’s Arianne Shaffer and Sadaf Rassoul Cameron will be joined by Danielle Royston-Lopez, Aisha Shillingford, and Cuong P. Hoang, who each bring unique perspectives and experiences related to power sharing in philanthropy. Read about them below:
