Member Talk: Presentation from the Ford Foundation on social change philanthropy and funding disability

19 Nov 2018
Graeae Theatre Company, Bradbury Studios, 138 Kingsland Road, London E2 8DY
Noorain Khan, Programme Officer in the Office of the President of the Ford Foundation presented on the Ford Foundation's journey to mainstream disability across the Foundation’s programmes and institutional processes. 
The Ford Foundation is a global leader of social change philanthropy investing over half a billion dollars annually in disrupting inequality.  Like many other philanthropic organisations supporting social justice and equality movements, the Foundation has come to realise that for too long disabled people have been left out of their conversations and programmes. They have started an exciting process of questioning institutional privilege, of listening to disability rights activists and of ransforming the programmes and inner workings of the Foundation itself by placing disability rights at the centre of their work for social justice.
