A view from the IKEA Foundation

Deborah Winshel, Global Head of Social Impact at BlackRock and Per Heggenes, CEO of the IKEA Foundation discuss the IKEA Foundation’s strategy: translating its philanthropic investments into systemic change that achieves its goals and purpose.

The session provokes interesting conversation, making it clear that both IKEA and BlackRock believe that it’s vital to take a long-term approach when it comes to making meaningful change. To drive true innovation, calculated risks need to be taken.

Clearly, climate change is too complex to tackle alone and we must do it together. The community of Family Offices across the globe is uniquely positioned to create change.
