There is an increasing recognition and understanding of the deep-seated structural inequities upon which the philanthropic sector and many other systems were built. Donors are moving away from the idea of racial equity and social justice as funding areas, and instead conceptualizing equity as a lens that spans grantmaking, governance, and management and operations. In this webinar, learn how to apply a racial equity lens to internal and external practices, how to discuss equity with staff and board, and explore resources for continued reflection on privilege, bias, and power.
