OPEN: The 2021 GIH Annual Conference on Health Philanthropy call for sessions is open through Thursday, October 8, 2020.
CONFERENCE THEME: BUILDING A JUST AND EQUITABLE FUTURE
2020 has been a turbulent year—one which has illustrated numerous inequities that inhibit our ability to achieve better health through better philanthropy at home. These disparities are directly related to health, public health, and health care, and to the social and structural factors that drive health outcomes. The challenges highlighted this year provide an opportunity to rethink and restructure the way we develop and implement programs to improve health outcomes, and philanthropic institutions are well positioned to help lead the way.
Next year’s annual conference will provide a space for health funders to come together and share how they responded to the challenges presented in 2020, exchange lessons learned, and discuss how to partner with communities, individuals and families, and others to implement sustainable changes that lead to better health for all. The conference will also offer an opportunity to think critically and creatively about how foundations can continue to adapt to the changing landscape to build a more just and equitable future.
