In her riveting opening keynote for PEAK2021, Black Voters Matter founder LaTosha Brown asked the audience to consider what possibilities would exist if racism was eliminated, urging everyone to claim and use their power and influence to build a movement for equitable practice within the organizations we serve. In order to make this happen, funders need to invest in change, lean in to difficult conversations, and radically reimagine the systems and structures that underpin our society. “Philanthropy, you have an opportunity,” Brown said. “This is our moment. We don’t have to be transactional or continue the way we’ve been continuing. Part of the paradigm of change is changing ourselves.”
