WE ARE LISTENING & LEARNING TOGETHER

Community Foundations have a rich history of community leadership: their work has long-centered on raising awareness and fostering community dialogue, identifying and engaging donors, and helping to set the agenda for community stability and well-being. Through this leadership, we are asking our community to join us in the learning and discussion around racial disparities and social equity issues.

The New DEI: Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging (DEIB)

Adding to the DEI framework is another letter. B stands for "Belonging." But Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB) are more than buzzwords. The DEIB framework is meant to improve workplace dynamics, workflow, productivity, and any organization's overall community.
