Racial Equity
In Philanthropy

A field-building experience where executives deepen their commitments to internal organizational change processes

Our Purpose

The goal of the Presidents’ Forum is to create a space where CEOs can candidly discuss the most difficult issues and trade-offs around equity and think through these important issues with others facing the same or similar questions.

We have to admit complicity, that every part of foundations, source of money, connections, is entirely steeped in a capitalist white supremacist model.
