What does it mean for a foundation to advance racial justice? What does it look like? What does it feel like? Where do you start? Hear from Northwest Area Foundation staff who will share examples of internal Diversity Equity Inclusion efforts and external grantmaking to spark group conversation. Participants will be encouraged to share examples of racial justice practices within their own foundations as well. We look forward to engaging in this peer discussion about the opportunities and challenges of becoming a sector for racial justice. 

This network is for MCF members who work at private independent foundations, but all MCF members who are interested are welcome. The conversation will be led by attendees; plan to be actively engaged and use your webcame, if you're comfortable doing so. Do you have suggestions for future meetings? Send them to Josh Vang, jvang@mcf.org

Conversations Hosts: 

  • Margie Andreason, Diversity Equity Inclusion Manager, Northwest Area Foundation 
  • Christianne Lind, Program Officer, Northwest Area Foundation
