    EPIP CO | Reducing Bias in Grantmaking

    Please join EPIP Colorado and the Rocky Mountain Chapter of PEAK Grantmaking for a session on Reducing Bias in Grantmaking. This collaborative event will feature a presentation, followed by a panel of local funders sharing their experiences, lessons learned, and recommendations.  

    The presentation by Melissa Sines, PEAK Grantmaking’s Programs and Knowledge Director, will focus on driving racial equity, justice, and inclusion in philanthropic practice. There will be a special emphasis on connecting and sharing the steps we are taking in the philanthropic sector to embed anti-racism into our funding strategies, policies, and practices. Attendees will build a conceptual framework for intentionally embedding equity in our processes and will have the opportunity to reflect on their own practices, ask key internal questions and identify and reduce bias in their practice of philanthropy.

    Moderated by Monica Abrahams from EPIP Colorado, the panel will consist of Camisha Lashbrook (The Women’s Foundation of Colorado), Dianne Myles (AJL Foundation), and Dace West (The Denver Foundation). These Colorado-based funders will be discussing their experiences of reducing bias in philanthropy at their own organizations, sharing insights, lessons learned, and goals for continuing this work.
