The SDGs and Advancing Racial Equity

by mhassell |

Over the last year, the convergence of the global pandemic and urgent social justice movements has understandably drawn the focus of philanthropy away from the Sustainable Development Goals. Adopted by the United Nations in 2015, the SDGs are interlinked global goals designed to be a blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. While some progress has been lost, the SDGs and years of work advancing the goals have provided a path forward, towards a just future. Join Dr. Larry McGill, author of How the Sustainable Development Goals Can Help Community Foundations Respond to COVID-19 and Advance Racial Equity, alongside Vanessa Dolishny from London Community Foundation and Dr. Nelson Colón Tarrats from Puerto Rico Community Foundation in a discussion on how SDGs can advance racial equity. Specifically, how as primarily white-led foundations we can use our power to advance anti-racism from within our own institutions to our local community. This session will be moderated by Nick Deychakiwsky, Senior Program Officer at the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation.
