Event description
A panel series illuminating the diverse identities, perspectives and experiences within Canada's philanthropic community

About this event

What does the future of charitable giving look like? Through a series of panel discussions we will explore the struggles, politics and possibilities within the charitable sector. Drawing on the diverse voices of philanthropists and community leaders, Generous Futures aims to shed new light on equity and belonging in Canada.

How can we create a more inclusive and accessible Canada? What are some of the socially-made barriers that exclude and harm people with disabilities? How do traditional systems of philanthropy and funding models perpetuate inequalities for people with disabilities? How do decisions around funding centre or exclude the voices and experiences of those most affected? Join our panel who will explore these questions and the role philanthropy plays in advancing disability rights.
