Darren Walker and title of eventThe Social Justice Changemaker Lecture series, established by a generous gift from Neil and Annmarie Hawkins, focuses on important global social justice issues, including race and nationality, immigration and refugees, income inequality, gender identity and sexual orientation, education, health, and mental and physical abilities. The Lecture aims to bring prominent social justice experts and advocates from multiple disciplines, including social sciences, science, humanities, the arts, and the professions, to the University of Michigan Campus.

This year’s lecture will focus on exploring ways to be a change agent during challenging times and how to use philanthropy as a force for social change. Darren Walker will talk about how he sees his position at the Ford Foundation and the role of philanthropy. He will discuss the idea of “trust-based” philanthropy and that being a leader is sometimes being a convener.

This event will take place in person – A livestream option will be made available on the SSW homepage. Continuing education hours will only be offered for the in-person event.
