Exploring Ways to be Antiracist: Strategies for Grantmakers

Starting with high level goals and strategies can strengthen your approach to becoming an antiracist organization. Join Lydia Boss and Luther Hughes, Program Managers at Artist Trust, in a conversation about creating and implementing strategies for enhancing equitable practices in grantmaking. Founded in 1986, Artist Trust is working toward becoming an antiracist organization and collaborating with artists of color to better support artists across Washington State through grants, resources, events, and professional development.

Regardless of your organization type or who you fund, increasing your awareness of equitable practices is essential. Sign up for this webinar and explore:

  • How to remove barriers for your applicants and panelists
  • How metrics and data can support your work toward more equitable grantmaking
  • How to work with your community and create future goals through a racial equity lens
  • Time for Q&A
