Fast Build Friday: Episode 51- Holding Grant Makers Accountable for Equity and Inclusion (Part II)

When something is important enough to you, they say you should “put your money where your mouth is.”

What happens when you don’t?

Today’s Fast Build is about holding grant makers accountable for equity and inclusion. In it, Nic shares the second recommendation to hold grant makers accountable – ensure they “put their money where their mouth is.” It is the second part of a two-part series.

If the only time a grant maker’s advisors or consultants are people of color is when it’s sourcing for DEI consultants, it needs to be held accountable. If you believe in equity and justice, you should be searching for ways to be more inclusive by engaging groups that have historically been left out of the conversation, both in terms of your work and your operations.

Do you think we can truly create grant making accountability standards? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
