Join us for this conversation as we explore the corporate giving landscape, racial equity initiatives and how to apply these practices in business and corporate environments. Our featured speakers from Giving USA Foundation and JPMorgan Chase & Co. will share what advancing racial equity and inclusion initiatives look like in 2021 against the backdrop of a pandemic, racial injustice and political transition. This conversation will provide examples of how corporate programs are investing in DEI initiatives and applying learnings from 2020.  This webinar will be hosted by Philanthropy Ohio.
