Diversity in leadership roles and equity and inclusion in decision making begets more diversity, equitability, and inclusivity. As funders, we must take a hard look at the homogeneity of our organizations. What is the make-up of the board of directors? Of the staff? We must include all relevant voices in our decision making.
The recently published Power Moves toolkit from the National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy does just this. It helps foundations see how they wield their power to create a more just and equitable world.
