On this episode of en(gender)ed, our guest is Edgar Villanueva, a globally-recognized expert on social justice philanthropy. Edgar currently serves as Chair of the Board of Directors of Native Americans in Philanthropy and is a Board Member of the Andrus Family Fund, a national foundation that works to improve outcomes for vulnerable youth. We speak with Edgar today about his work and the ideas in his book, "Decolonizing Wealth," which offers a vision of philanthropy and wealth creation and accumulation through the lens of social justice and racial equity.
During our conversation, Edgar and I referenced the following resources and topics:
- Audre Lorde's concept that the "Master's Tools Will Not Dismantle the Master's House" and if they can
- The Indigenous, Lakota concept of "All My Relations" or "Mitakuye Oyasin"
- My interview with CV Harquail about her book, "Feminism: A Key Idea for Business and Society"
- Edgar's suggested policy proposals for the philanthropic sector to address historical racial and gender inequality
- The Equal Rights Amendment
- Melinda Gates' Pivotal Ventures which is focused on gender equality
