Structurally Rooted Systemic Inequality Requires Social Justice Solutions

April 26, 2022 @ 10:00 am 11:15 am PDT

Hosted by SAFSF and Duke University World Food Policy Center

Structural inequality establishes and maintains dominating relationships, where certain groups of people are valued more than other groups of people. This plays out in every aspect of our society. Relational, robust, structurally rooted social justice informed equity is the way to deconstruct manifestations of structural inequality. This session will define Structurally Rooted Systemic Inequality, identify the mechanisms that uphold it, detail how that plays out in communities, and open a conversation around philanthropy’s role in both upholding and dismantling it. This session will start the conversation of philanthropy’s role in upholding and unwinding these systems, and set the stage for deeper dives into equity at the 20th Annual SAFSF Forum: Commitment & Accountability.

This is a free, funder-only event, please register below.

Session Goals:

  • Define structural inequality and what upholds it.
  • Describe the human impact of structural inequality.
  • Discuss the various ways in which philanthropy perpetuates structural inequality and how we are working to dismantle it.
