We just wrapped up our second ✨ Race Equity Cycle Pulse Check™ Cohort ✨ and are reflecting on the journey with Monica Banks from @socalgrantmaker, who was part of our first cohort. 

“It’s also allowed us to identify some focus areas for ourselves and admit that maybe we’re not as far along as we thought we were, and that’s okay.” 

Shoutout to Monica for sharing her experience and to Juan Serrano for designing and facilitating the program! 🙌💬 

We loved being in community with all our participants this past year 🖤

Amidst all the #DEI and #RaceEquity backlash, a supportive community for the practitioners who do this work is crucial. 

This is why we’re excited to launch our Practitioner Community of Practice (PCoP) with Dr. Raquel Gutierrez. 

This program is a unique opportunity for practitioners to share learning, engage in thought partnership and explore the nuance of equity work in a multi-ethnic, multi-racial community rooted in shared values and a vision for building a Race Equity Culture™ in organizations.

Learn More About Us

We envision a future where nonprofit and philanthropic organizations are characterized by a Race Equity Culture™, meaning they implement and advance race equity internally while advocating for and centering it in work externally.

To achieve that future, we challenge colleagues to adopt specific tactics on the levels at which racism operates.
