Racial and Gender Equity Cohort


The RGEC is a long-term programmatic strategy that will create a shared learning space for philanthropic leaders to gain a deeper understanding and awareness of the implicit implications of structural racism in the Southern United States.  In addition to understanding the plight of people of color in the south, leaders will grapple with the intersections of gender and equity.  Unpacking how women of color and the people of LGBTQ community have been historically excluded and marginalized throughout the region.  The over-arching goal for this programming will be to help philanthropic institutions create a just Racial and Gender Equity lens for their grant-making strategies and investments.
