Who Can Use This Tool
The tool is designed for nonprofit leaders, staff and board members interested in confronting and reducing racial inequity.
This tool presents a framework to guide entry into reflective, productive conversations that address racial equity and social justice. It defines four conversation stages with key questions for each. The tool then offers considerations and guiding questions for philanthropic staff, board and leaders to answer at each one. At each stage, the conversation should begin with internal reflection and discussion within the organization.
The conversation should then move out to a broader audience through a participatory, democratic process where all involved are listeners, learners, sharers and problem solvers. A case study of a fictitious foundation provides examples of how the tool can be applied.
