The Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity in Environmental Philanthropy (InDeep) program is a professional development series and learning community for environmental grantmakers. With support from the Hewlett Foundation, InDeep launched in early 2017, engaging nearly 40 foundations in peer learning sessions. Demand for the program’s services continues to grow. In the coming years, the program will continue its professional development series with topics of interest, including funding pipeline development, culture change, and talent recruitment and retention. InDeep will also conduct webinars, create and distribute newsletters, and launch a new Embedding Equity series for senior managers at foundations.
