Developing an Organizational Framework for Diversity, Equity and InclusionOften, the first step in advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion is to facilitate a thoughtful conversation internally. There are several excellent resources that can help you do that:
ABFE’s Responsive Philanthropy in Black Communities program provides training and technical assistance to help foundations develop a framework for their grantmaking that responds to the unique needs and disparities faced by Black communities.
The Philanthropic Initiative for Racial Equity (PRE) provides training for foundations and philanthropic networks on how to integrate racial equity into their work.
Funders for LGBTQ Issues has a Racial Equity Online Toolkit that provides a range of tools, commentaries and best practices to support grantmakers in implementing an LGBTQ racial equity lens into their grantmaking and internal operations.
Emerging Practionioners in Philanthropy’s webinar with the National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy on Implicit Bias in Grantmaking provides insight into how implicit bias influences decisions and trends in philanthropic institutions.
