Day 3 Concurrent Session - What's Your Equity Footprint?

It is not enough for foundations to simply avoid inequitable practices in a society premised on white supremacy and patriarchy; rather, foundations must consciously dedicate themselves to centering equity in all facets of their institutions’ work. Rather than simply minimizing a damaging footprint, an Equity Footprint invites the foundation to enact positive, equitable change.This conversation seeks to provide a framework, a lens, and perhaps some tools to support foundations to interrogate their respective cultures, practices and norms, toward the aim of embedding equity. The writer James Baldwin once asserted, 'Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.' This session seeks to support participants in utilizing the Equity Footprint framework to build their capacities to assess our organizational practices, and build the competencies to advance equity.
