Join PEAK Grantmaking's President and CEO, Satonya Fair, for a discussion to help grantmakers understand what we're doing that might be systematically putting certain organizations and projects at a disadvantage, without meaning to. We'll also identify how we can work proactively to level the playing field, or even improve the chances, for organizations and leaders that have been historically disenfranchised.

Maryland Philanthropy Network members are invited to learn what their peers are doing (and why and how!) around requesting, collecting and reporting data from grantees. We’ll discuss how funders can drive values of equity and inclusion throughout the application process - including what we require from an organization as we make funding decisions. We’ll also discuss how well philanthropy is looking at ourselves.
The behind the scenes orchestration of managing and administering grants is often as varied as the grantmaking organizations themselves.
