Increasing Philanthropic Effectiveness Through Expanded Diversity
The Diversity in Philanthropy Project is a voluntary effort of foundation trustees, senior staff, and executives committed to increasing field-wide diversity. The project is rooted in the belief that diversifying perspectives, talent, and experience can help ensure philanthropy’s continued leadership in a rapidly changing society. Begun in 2007, this three-year initiative seeks to expand diversity, equity, and inclusion in board and staff representation, grant making, and contracting.
