VOICES: Amelia Corl

Q: What steps have GHR’s staff taken to become more anti-racist?

A: We are undertaking work individually and as a team to build our capacity around racial consciousness and dismantling unjust systems. We have had the tremendous benefit of working with one of the most outstanding leaders in this work—Tony Hudson of Racially Conscious Collaboration.

I have also been grateful for all of the resources staff and partners are sharing from well-known guidance to philanthropy such as “Power Moves,” which is a self-assessment guide for equity and justice put out by the National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy, all the way to podcasts like Nice White Parents, 1619 and Seeing White. I’ve been excited that the energy isn’t waning even six months after George Floyd was killed.
