As some aspects of our society begin to settle back into their pre-2020 rhythms, the question looms large as to whether philanthropy will do the same. To examine how the sector had to change in response to crisis—and how it must continue to evolve with urgency—PEAK President and CEO Satonya Fair led a discussion with three women CEOs in the closing keynote of PEAK2021 Online.
In The Changing Face of Philanthropy, Libra Foundation Executive Director Crystal Hayling, Marguerite Casey Foundation President and CEO Carmen Rojas, and Winthrop Rockefeller Foundation President and CEO Sherece West-Scantlebury shared the ways in which they see opportunities to reimagine the internal and external culture of philanthropy and what they are doing to realize those changes. What follows are three key themes that emerged from their conversation, which you can enjoy in full online.
- Strategy needs to be rooted in transparency
- Movement building starts on the inside
- Don’t leave the current moment behind
Change starts with you and it starts with your organization. —Satonya Fair
