Learning Exchange Framework – February 2021
This Learning Exchange Framework helps groups of foundation representatives share policies, practices, lessons, and ideas on racial equity and inclusion with each other. This learning is intended to help participants bring new concepts back to their foundations in order to help these institutions develop or refine their systems and operations regarding racial equity and inclusion.
Philanthropy New York is committed to supporting members’ learning and action. Our Learning Exchange partnership with the Race and Equity in Philanthropy Group aligns with our value of nurturing a community that learns from and with each other and builds accountability through collective work. These exchanges remind everyone that racial equity is a journey, and we all need inside-outside partnerships to move toward more racially equitable philanthropic practice and culture.
Marga Incorporated has implemented the REPG Learning Exchange Framework as a series of three learning exchanges with the following cohorts:
- Philanthropy New York (Representatives from the following foundations participated: Arbor Brothers, Blue Meridian Partners Inc., Citi Foundation, ELMA, Pinkerton Foundation, Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors, and Wellspring Philanthropic Fund).
- Chicago Cross-Funder Racial Equity Collaborative (Representatives from the following foundations participated: Chicago Community Trust, Grand Victoria Foundation, Joyce Foundation, MacArthur Foundation, Polk Bros. Foundation, Robert R. McCormick Foundation, and Woods Fund).
