Philanthropists and diversity

As we prepare for Donna Walker Kuhne’s upcoming sessions on Diversifying Audiences (September 20-21) the latest issue of The Philanthropist, featuring a collection of articles on diaspora, might be thought-provoking and useful reading.

Focusing on issues and themes of special interest to charitable donors, The Philanthropist can be equally valuable for nonprofit managers and fundraisers. In this issue, I was particularly interested in Archana Sridhar’s article “An Opportunity to Lead: South Asian Philanthropy in Canada,” which examines the philanthropic history of South Asians in Canada and the diversity of their giving. Sandra Wilking’s piece “Beyond Awareness: Engaging Ethnocultural/Racial Communities – the Chinese-Canadian Experience,” offers eight valuable lessons to assist in cultivating enthnocultural/racial diversity. And Winnie Hwo, from the David Suzuki Foundation, in “DSF Public Engagement with Ethnic Canadians,” discusses how they are engaging ethnic Canadian communities in their climate change initiatives.
