Letting Go of Power in Impact Investing and Philanthropy
Friday 30th July 2021
The video for Letting Go of Power in Impact Investing and Philanthropy is now available to view
The Letting Go book launch event and discussion was hosted by Centre for Knowledge Equity, Equality Impact Investing and Big Society Capital on 15th July, and included some brilliant thoughts on how those within the impact investing and philanthropy sectors can move forward the movement to let go of power in the UK, and what is possible when that happens.
Centre for Knowledge Equity’s Chief Equity Officer Baljeet Sandhu chaired a powerful panel of insight and provocations from UK investors who have already made the move to let go, as well as other key voices in the UK funding space, including members of the Lived Experience Leaders Movement who have activated their lived, learned and practice expertise to really pioneer new ways of operating in these sectors.
