As communities worldwide are becoming more diverse, they are increasingly tackling the realities of systemic inequity. Philanthropy too must acknowledge its place in the context of transformative demographic changes. Addressing diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) has been an ongoing challenge within philanthropy, and while there has been progress, it requires continual work. This GrantCraft leadership series paper by Barbara Chow dives into those challenges and opportunities to explore how DEI can become more integrated into grant-making practices and broader foundation ethos.
Through examples, peer insight, and discussion questions this resource provides practical guidance for funders looking to examine their organisational and funding practices to strategically incorporate a DEI framework. It is intended to inspire reflection, and conversation within your organisation and among peers to move from buzzwordy theory to concrete action.
