In this panel from our Frontiers of Social Innovation forum in May, Rob Reich, professor of political science at Stanford University and faculty co-director of the Stanford Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society, moderates a discussion about how foundations, which are arguably the product of marketplace excess, can nevertheless be a vehicle to remedy inequality and advance social justice.

The first panelist is Darren Walker, who as president of the Ford Foundation has spearheaded the organization’s shift toward a focus on inequality. The second is Craig Newmark, the founder of the popular online classified advertising site Craigslist, who has since established Craigconnects, a platform to support a range of organizations in areas from veterans affairs to women in tech to ethical journalism.
