At a time of rising inequality, Ford Foundation President Darren Walker is reimagining philanthropy less as charity than a tool to advance justice. He calls for “all who work in industries that serve others and the greater good, from philanthropy to education, health care to social services” to unflinchingly examine fundamental root causes of structural inequality and consider whether their own longstanding practices reinforce it.

The 2020 Ewing Halsell Distinguished Lecture features a conversation with Mr. Walker, who will detail ideas outlined in his book “From Generosity to Justice: A New Gospel of Wealth” and describe implications for philanthropy, medicine and more. Said Mr. Walker: “Now is the time to abandon previous conceptions of what is possible and to move toward a world of promise.”

The conversation will be moderated by Raul B. Rodriguez, Associate Vice President for International Affairs at Monterrey Tech in Mexico. Mr. Rodriguez has served as CEO of the North American Development Bank; chairman of the World Affairs Council of San Antonio; and the Tom Benson Chair in Banking and Finance and Distinguished Professor at the University of the Incarnate Word.

**Please note that Zoom Webinar spaces are limited. A YouTube livestream is also available.**
