1. Walker, Wilson, and den Bok - Philanthropy Trailblazers Tony Chapman 31:38

Woman in Philanthropy. It’s Nonprofit Appreciation Week, and I wanted to honour WoodGreen Community Services. WoodGreen ensures that the UNMET needs of thousands of Canadians are MET every year.


In this special edition of Chatter That Matters, taped live at the Toronto Hun Club, I chatted with three remarkable women who are Philanthropy Trailblazers. I learned that Charity focuses on eliminating suffering. In contrast, Philanthropy focuses on eliminating the problem. I also learned that the world of Philanthropy is changing. There’s more emphasis on causes like gender equality and sustainable development than before. A more diverse, representative range of voices is influencing decision-making. Women are among the key drivers.


Shraddha Kothari Walker talks about why Philanthropy isn’t just about giving back. It’s about connecting and building a community that uplifts everyone – a cycle of kindness that must be passed on to the next generation.


Beth Wilson, FCPA, FCA, ICD.D shatters the glass ceilings in Philanthropy by recognizing women’s strength in driving impactful and bold change in our communities.


Leah den Bok shares authentic stories of those who experience homelessness to dismantle the stereotypes and ignite a collective responsibility to act.


It is also a fantastic show to share and discuss with our younger generation.
