Please join the Maryland Philanthropy Network Rising Leaders for lunch to continue discussions about strategies that advance racial equity and support marginalized communities through Maryland grantmaking.
Join this interactive, open presentation about the terms, ideas, and findings behind “intersectional” approaches that reconnect race, class, and gender to improve life outcomes for at-risk youth. Toolkits and leave-behinds provided.
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.
Advancing racial equity and supporting marginalized communities require intentional power shifting and the redistribution of wealth. Join the Rising Leaders for a brown bag discussion about strategies Maryland funders can use to promote systems of liberation in our communities.
Maryland Philanthropy Network is pleased to host our annual Responsive Philanthropy in the Black Community (RPBC) Training in partnership with the Maryland Philanthropy Network of Black Foundation Executives (ABFE).
In this session, you’ll hear what foundations are doing broadly to incorporate equity internally, as well as ways Maryland Philanthropy Network funders are making equity a part of their day-to-day operations. Then, you’ll have the opportunity for small group discussions and a chance to ask deeper questions of each panelist, as you create your own plan for next steps to address equity within your own foundation.
Philanthropy has a powerful voice with which it can talk about racial equity and inclusion.
The inequity and racial disparities that many foundations seek to address are often perpetuated by policies that not only disadvantage communities of color but also over-advantage whites and white-led organizations seeking funding.
We are in a moment where the nation’s racial discourse is more complex and ever-present than most have experienced before.
