What if the most powerful step you could take towards social change lies within your organization? Amidst the roaring global call for greater diversity, equity, and inclusion, the tides of philanthropy are turning towards greater trust, flexibility, and participation. Those who are seizing the moment are finding far too often that our institutions are stuck, stuck in old mindsets, antiquated practices and outdated policies. Proposing change can get sticky and even be risky.
We are living in unprecedented times. To claim anything else would be to naively dismiss our new reality; however, to believe that we cannot come out of this pandemic stronger than before would be to allow fear and anxiety to shroud the great opportunity before us.
We are being exposed. The ugly truths that our nation has tried to hide are coming to light and, in the light, we can diagnose problems by name and collectively work towards their cure. We now see that our healthcare system is inadequate, that our country is too slow to respond to disasters, that we undervalue the workers who keep our country running, and that racial minorities have to inequitably deal with the consequences.Read more
