The Forum has officially launched the 2023 Racial Equity Learning & Action Cohort Application to support Forum members in your racial equity work! Offered as part of the Forum's overarching racial equity learning continuum, the Cohort builds upon our work together in the inaugural cohort (2020-2021).
One of the key findings from United Philanthropy Forum’s 2018 Racial Equity Scan of Philanthropy-Serving Organizations (PSOs) was that Forum members are eager to engage in peer learning, particularly around advancing racial equity in their organizations, with their members and through their programs. In order to advance this learning, and to support member organizations who are at different places on the continuum of equity skills and practice, the Forum is partnering with Change Elemental to create two Racial Equity Peer Learning Cohorts
