Opening Keynote | Inspiration and Courage for Movement Building in Philanthropy

Ballroom, Level 3

Sponsored by Chan Zuckerberg Initiative

“My whole life, I wanted to be a part of change. I wanted to use my gifts and skills to help people tap into their own sense of power.” — LaTosha Brown

As a strategy for change, movement building has leapt to the forefront of philanthropic conversations. However, many are still stuck at the conversation stage. They don’t know how, or feel they don’t have the positional power, to help move from discussion to concrete action.

During our opening keynote, LaTosha Brown, co-founder of Black Voters Matter Fund, will empower attendees to go from talking about change to setting it into motion. Sharing highlights and lessons learned from her real-life experiences, LaTosha will encourage attendees to advance change fearlessly, facilitate courageous conversations, and develop leadership that is built upon, and supports, the values of equity, justice, and inclusion.
