In Case You Missed It: Three years of Borealis Philanthropy’s Racial Equity in Philanthropy Fund
In a recent email, Borealis Philanthropy reflects on the first three years of the Racial Equity in Philanthropy (REP) Fund, 2020 learnings, and how their commitment to "racial equity values and practice shows up beyond the job."
As Maya Thornell-Sandifor, co-interim director of Borealis Philanthropy, and the director of the Racial Equity Initiatives, says:
Three years ago people would never utter the words “white supremacy” in a philanthropic setting. Three years ago the focus was still in large part about diversity not racial equity. The conversations are happening in a much more explicit way, and so I think our intention now is to build on that momentum as much as we can.
