Racial Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

The Forum has a strategic focus on advancing racial equity, diversity and inclusion in philanthropy by leveraging the power of our expanding nationwide network of regional and national philanthropy-serving organizations (PSOs). 

We provide programming on racial equity, diversity and inclusion for people working at PSOs through our annual conference, webinars and in other ways. We are also focused on helping PSOs provide funders with effective resources, programming and strategies to advance racial equity, diversity and inclusion in philanthropy, guided by a new Racial Equity Working Group.

The Forum was a partner in the D5 coalition, a five-year effort organized by a coalition of foundations and associations to galvanize philanthropy’s work on diversity, equity and inclusion. D5 sought to leverage the collective knowledge, experience, and action of more than 17 organizations, representing thousands of foundations.
