Centering Your Member’s Lived Experience as a Tool for Racial Equity Part 2
Giving circles support and represent work in every aspect of our social fabric, providing essential support, enriching our communities and cultural life, and taking action where change is needed. However, individuals with first-hand experience often have lots of ideas and solutions, but are not always positioned to share those on a path to impact which can reinforce patterns of power and privilege that uphold systemic racism.
Join giving circle leaders Akilah Wallace, Founder and Chair and Tyeshia Wilson, Chair-Elect of HERitage Giving Fund for a two-part series where you’ll learn how to recognize and utilize community voice and lived experience as a tool for racial equity. Participants will discuss patterns that perpetuate inequities, how to thoughtfully center community voices and lived experiences into the grant-making and decision-making processes, which ultimately when designed well, can be a part of supporting an end to racial inequity and social injustice.
The series will highlight real examples, both from HERitage’s work and other giving circles across the country.
Participants will learn:
- How HERitage members lived experiences helped informed our strategy and vision
- How to effectively center your members lived experiences and voices in the programs and services of your giving circl
