Share Your Stories: LGBTQ Practitioners in "Mainstream" Institutions

By Brian Schultz and Kristi Andrasik

In the ever-changing climate for LGBTQ people in our country, what’s it like to an LGBTQ person in philanthropy? More specifically, what’s it like to be an LGBTQ person working in a non-LGBTQ (or “mainstream”) foundation? Given our own work in both philanthropy and in the LGBTQ community, we’ve become increasingly interested in this question.

It is important that we capture the experiences of individuals working in all types of foundations large and small, public and private, and all geographic areas of the country. Findings and analysis will be released in an upcoming EPIP Issue Brief.
