Panel Discussion: Democracy and Philanthropy

Rob Reich, Faculty Co-Director of the Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society (Stanford PACS) and Faculty Director of the Program on Ethics in Society, will explore the role of foundations in democratic societies. He argues that foundations can gain legitimacy in spite of the unchecked power they wield, through their work supporting diversity and long-run social policy innovation. Larry Kramer (President, William and Flora Hewlett Foundation), Susan Liautaud (Visiting Scholar, Stanford PACS), and Chiara Cordelli (Post Doctoral Scholar, Stanford PACS) will respond.

In the Ethics and Wealth series of talks, seminars, readings, films and performances, the McCoy Family Center for Ethics in Society, along with several campus partners will critically explore the relationship between money and humanity.
