The ecosystem of nonprofit organizations in the United States is growing at a rapid rate, and the assets of philanthropic institutions continue to grow as well. Hundreds of millions of dollars have been invested by philanthropy into many of these nonprofit institutions in the name of change and social justice. Yet, a walk through any of the projects in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles or any other major city of the United States will quickly reveal that not much has changed for the residents of these underrepresented communities. Why?
In their latest article, “Paid in Full”, published by Stanford Social Innovation Review, Dorian Burton and Brian C.B. Barnes argue that there is a lack of dimensionality, authentic community engagement, and a neglect to map out a comprehensive approach to change that is missing from the strategies set forth by our philanthropic and social sector institutions. In this webinar, Dorian Burton, Chief Strategy Officer and Co-founder of TandemEd., and Assistant Executive Director at Keenen Charitable Trust, along with Shawn Dove, CEO of the Campaign for Black Male Achievement, Dr. Brian Barnes, Co-Founder and CEO of TandemEd, Trabian Shorters, CEO of BMe Community, and Anthony Smith, CEO of Cities United, will come together to discuss the importance of redirecting philanthropic investments for justice-oriented collective action and impact, and how that translates in the real world.
You will have the opportunity to learn about the seven elements of the paid-in-full investment strategy, and how to apply this approach to your work, as a grantmaker, nonprofit, government, or community-based entity. Finally, they will also talk about why investing in black men and boys is a key component of justice-oriented collective action, and vital to whole community health.
Upon completion of this webinar you should be able to:
- Describe tangible strategies for placemaking and building community health
- Recognize how and why you should move to Asset Framing rather than Deficit-Based Narratives
- Identify the barriers and opportunities to investing in building equitable communities
- Plan how to reorient your institution for equitable change and investments in the field
