About this event

Considering diverse perspectives and experiences is critical to effective grantmaking and foundation programming. Practicing equity requires slowing down to reflect on the ways we can facilitate a more equitable and inclusive grantmaking process. This training is designed for mid- to senior-level foundation staff or trustees who are at the beginning of thinking about how to apply equity in the practice of grantmaking and program development. The context is designed to focus on the individual role and the practice of equity in grantmaking.

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 an understanding of racial equity in the context of philanthropy.
  • Take home skills and tools that will help you take action in applying an equity lens in your role and grantmaking practice.

Please contact JulieAnne Behar with any questions.
