This workshop will help participants get specific about the types of grantmaking practices that support – or hinder – equity. During this session, we’ll work through a design-thinking exercise to help us answer the question: “If we were to design the grantmaking process to support grantseekers and grantees and contribute to a more just and equitable world, what would that look like?” If you are a grantmaker that has embraced the values of diversity, equity, and inclusion, this workshop is for you.
