Considering diverse perspectives and experiences is critical to effective grantmaking and foundation programming. Practicing equity requires the activation of a specific set of soft skills and a slowing down to reflect on the ways we can facilitate a more equitable and inclusive grantmaking process. In this hands-on training, you will:

  • Identify ways to apply an equity lens to design programs and grantmaking strategies that are inclusive and accessible to communities of color and underserved populations.
  • Gain understanding of racial equity in the context of philanthropy.
  • Practice with case-studies and run-through personal skills that are important to build your capacity to incorporate an equity lens into your work.
  • Hear from a panel of practitioners in philanthropy that are incorporating equity work into their programs and grantmaking.
  • Take home skills and tools that will help you take action in applying an equity lens in your role and grantmaking practice.

This training is designed for mid- to senior-level foundation program staff who are at the beginning of their thinking about how to apply equity in the practice of grantmaking and program development.
