Philanthropy New York has been working to deepen our own learning, and that of our members, about structural racism and its deep roots in our history, culture and institutions. Core to our work is designing programs and sharing resources that equip members to adapt and transform their practices as philanthropic organizations.
We work to embed racial equity analysis into Philanthropy New York programming and continually invest resources in developing programming of all shapes and sizes that can offer guidance to funders on foundational racial equity concepts, internal organization equity practices, grantmaking frameworks, and how structural racism impacts all areas in which we work.
Our programming is ever evolving. It has included:
- our intensive cohort program, Leading With Race Equity: Building Stronger Culture and Practice
- an equity speaker series (which will resume in the fall 2020),
- our Food for Thought series of conversations hosted by PNY's Committee for Equitable and Inclusive Philanthropy,
- regular issue-based programming, and
- partnerships with colleague organizations to bring racial equity training to PNY members.
We add new programs to our Calendar of Events regularly and all PNY members should receive our program emails each Tuesday with the list of upcoming offerings. Please continue to share with us the type of programming that would support your foundation in advancing racial justice.
Thousands of resources exist to support and move individuals and organizations wherever we all are on our racial equity journey. RacialEquityTools.org provides a deep database of tools, resources and learning opportunities.
