Growing numbers of community foundations are making commitments to advancing racial equity in their communities. While forming a point of view on racial equity is an important first step, putting that commitment into action is complex work. What are the steps community foundations are taking to advance racial equity inside their foundations? How are they engaging important stakeholders—such as board members and donors—in this work? This webinar will share findings from research on community foundation practices to advance equity. Participants will also hear how the Community Foundation of Greater Birmingham secured board buy-in for prioritizing racial equity in its work and how the foundation is engaging its donors in conversations about racial equity.
