Distinguished Speaker Seminar: Darren Walker in conversation

DUE TO UNFORESEEN CIRCUMSTANCES THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED.

Disrupting inequality in all its forms.

Darren Walker is the president of the Ford Foundation, an independent, nonprofit grant-making organisation with a $13 billion endowment. For more than 80 years it has worked with courageous people on the front-lines of social change worldwide, guided by its mission to strengthen democratic values, reduce poverty and injustice, promote international cooperation, and advance human achievement. The current focus of the foundation is to disrupt inequality in all its forms.

Walker is challenging philanthropy to move toward a New Gospel of Wealth with an emphasis to move beyond charity toward justice. This includes a robust effort to create a more inclusive form of capitalism given the state of global economic inequality.
