A new initiative of ProInspire, Equity in the Center’s goal is that all U.S. non-profit organizations and foundations become racially diverse and actively participate in, defining, and advancing equitable opportunities for all. To achieve this goal, Equity in the Center creates, disseminates and curates knowledge to support foundations and nonprofits in shifting mindsets and systems and taking action to combat structural racism in all levels of the social sector. They also host communities of practice and convenings, including their first ever Equity Summit in 2017 in conjunction with the annual Independent Sector conference. They aim to support leaders and organizations in these difficult, yet potentially transformative efforts.
