Strengthening the Social Fabric: Can the Social Sector Help Restore Trust?

Strengthening the Social Fabric: Can the Social Sector Help Restore Trust?

We invite you to join Arabella Advisors as we continue our Future of the Social Sector series exploring how philanthropy must adapt to an era of crises. Our next virtual convening will focus on:

During this event, we will explore what is driving the breakdown in social trust we are experiencing as a nation—including factors such as rising inequality, increased economic precarity for the middle and working class, and rapid demographic changes—and examine the role philanthropy and the social sector can play in countering this trend.

The conversation will feature Jeanné Lewis, interim CEO at Faith in Public Life, and Kara Inae Carlisle, vice president of programs at the McKnight Foundation; the conversation will be moderated by Loren McArthur, senior director at Arabella Advisors.
