Moving to Racial Equity: What’s Getting in the Way!?! | A Conversation with Nonprofit Leaders

Host Organization: Castellano Family Foundation and Silicon Valley Community Foundation


Latinx and other nonprofit leaders of color continue to be underrepresented, under-resourced, and undervalued in organized philanthropy’s work. More and more funders and nonprofit leaders recognize the problem, yet change is not happening at a rate or scope sufficient to make a meaningful difference.

What will it take for nonprofit leaders to be successful in leveraging greater social investment responsiveness to our communities’ changing demography and needs? What is getting in the way of real change in forging true partnerships with philanthropic institutions and donors and why has it taken so long?

Join the Castellano Family Foundation and fellow leaders of Latinx and other BIPOC-led nonprofit organizations in an honest conversation on the issues with Seattle-based social investment activist and thinker Vu Le.

Vu Le (“voo lay”) is a writer, speaker, and social critic. He is the former executive director of RVC, a Seattle nonprofit that promotes social justice by developing leaders of color, strengthening organizations led by communities of color, and fostering collaboration between diverse communities.

Angie Briones, Director of Grantmaking & Strategic Initiatives at the Castellano Family Foundation, will moderate the conversation.
