What We Are Learning

Achieving Equity Convening - Videos (March 2, 2017)

The Weingart Foundation’s full commitment to equity contains a pledge to use our voice—whatever influence we might have—to call attention to the importance of advancing fairness and inclusion and urge our peers to join in this work. Many in philanthropy have taken up the call for equity but much more needs to be done, and we need to learn from one another. This is why on March 2, 2017 our Foundation brought together key leaders from philanthropy, as well as from the nonprofit sector, government, business, and labor for the Achieving Equity convening in Los Angeles.
