Embedding equity in grantmaking: three works-in-progress

Wed, May 14, 2014, 2:00pm
Seattle, WA

This event is open to Philanthropy Northwest members, Social Venture Partners and The Seattle Foundation donors.

Philanthropy Northwest has spent the last year studying how foundations can build an internal culture that addresses diversity, equity and inclusion. SVP Seattle has spent the last year conducting a diversity and cultural competency inventory through the lens of their 300-plus partners and community members. The Seattle Foundation has been steadily moving toward a focus on equity for much of its work. All three of the organizations’ work, conducted separately, raises a raft of hard and important questions. Please join representatives from each organization for an honest, open conversation about the challenges we have faced embedding equity more squarely internally and through grantmaking.
