Implementing Equitable Grantmaking Practices
Session materials from PEAK2019.
Forget best practices. Well, at least set them aside for now. Many of those practices could support the status quo. If we were to design the grantmaking process to contribute to a more just and equitable world, what would that look like? This session will identify the types of grantmaking practices that support—or hinder—equity. Participate in a design-thinking exercise to prepare to lead change inside an organization.
Participants will learn about:
Practices that support more equitable grantmaking
Overcoming organizational barriers to change
Possible next steps toward greater alignment between grantmaking practices and the values of diversity, equity, and inclusion
- Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: Promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in grantmaking practices.
- Process and Change Management: Plan and monitor processes efficiently and effectively and manage change as needed to contribute to grantmaker's strategic goals and grantee's success.
