SCO President & CEO Keith Little Panelist in FPWA Anti-Racism Event

September 28, 2020 / SCO News

Keith Little, SCO Family of Services President & CEO, joined a distinguished group of panelists in FPWA’s virtual event, Power Shift: Casting off racism to create transformative change.

Human services staff, leaders, and board members, philanthropic individuals and organizations, government staff and leaders, and policy influencers tuned in to hear an open and honest discussion by leaders in their respective fields about the changes that must be made to build true and lasting racial equity and power sharing into every aspect of the work we do.

The first hour examined how various entities – nonprofits, community-based organizations, government, philanthropy, the courts – have all contributed to the racism inherent in the systems within which we work and live. The second hour was a lively roundtable conversation with human services nonprofit leaders reflecting on how systemic racism, as discussed by the first panel, plays out in the day-to-day practices of human services organizations.
