If we want to build back better after the pandemic, we must reconsider philanthropy and create a new kind of capitalism thatís rooted in generosity and accountability, says Darren Walker, president of the Ford Foundation.†

In this vital conversation, Walker calls for citizens and corporations to question the inequality that makes their wealth possible, to think about their own complicity in creating economic injustice and to celebrate the critical role art plays in creating a culture that uplifts everyone.
