Reflections on Trust, Risk, and Due Diligence
February 9 @ 11:00 am - 2:30 pm EST
An International Development Week conversation for funders, policy folks, and advocates.
This International Development Week, join us for a dynamic discussion about re-thinking trust, risk, and due diligence in philanthropy and international development.
- How have colonial understandings of due diligence and risk shaped top-down approaches to development?
- What role does trust play in shifting power and resources into the hands of the communities most affected by the issues we’re working to address?
- What can we learn from funders and communities that are doing things differently?
This online event will feature a thought-provoking panel of speakers who will explore how anticolonial approaches to trust, risk, and due diligence can help us build a more just and equal world.
- Anele Yawa, General Secretary, Treatment Action Campaign
- Hamda Hersi, Project Coordinator, Adeso
- Lara Adetukasi, Interim Director of Programs, Stephen Lewis Foundation
- Liban Abokor, Managing Partner, Reimagine LABS
moderated by Meg French, Executive Director, Stephen Lewis Foundation
Audience members will be invited to contribute to the conversation through the chat box and during the Q&A period.
This event will be in English.
