Mobilizing Positive Action for Black Lives Through Digital Tools
September 28 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Join us for a fireside chat with Give Blck, the organization and digital tool tackling systemic racism by bringing awareness to Black-founded nonprofits and channeling capital into Black hands. What started as a simple, crowdsourced spreadsheet, went viral and has quickly grown into Give Blck — a groundbreaking database that’s using technology to help reshape the philanthropy space with a race-conscious approach to giving.
Of the $450 billion donated annually in America, only a fraction goes to Black-founded organizations. Work & Co partnered with Give Blck to develop a brand and digital platform to combat this disparity and promote advance Black communities long term.
Work & Co Technology Director Tim Hettler will lead a conversation with Christina Lewis, Give Blck’s co-founder, and Aisha Alexander-Young, the organization’s newly appointed CEO. They’ll explore the Give Blck mission, what goes into launching a brand in a month’s time, and future plans for mobilizing positive action for Black lives.
