The ongoing pandemic has devastated the world, sparking global response in the areas of healthcare, education, connectivity, and finance. The number of cases in Africa and throughout the United States is rising as business and individuals brace the impact of a major recession. At this critical time, how do people access funding? What are foundations doing to make a difference and provide accessible funding to organizations across Africa and the United States during COVID-19 and in the post-pandemic era? This fireside chat welcomes Peter Laugharn of Conrad Hilton Foundation President and CEO and Dr. Latanya Mapp Frett, CEO and President of Global Fund for Women and Dr. James Mwangi, Group managing director & Group CEO, Equity Group Holdings Limited to share insight and efforts on supporting livelihoods for the most vulnerable and how Africans, diasporans, and friends of Africa can be engaged.
