The Miami Foundation is a fiscal sponsor for Representative Democracy, a program to ensure diversity, equity, and inclusion in government by reimagining the public-sector workplace and who is at the decision-making table. Core areas of activity support organizations focused on representative government initiatives with grants and technical knowledge to build DEI programs and accountability strategies, while also building in-house research capacity to better understand the drivers and impacts of inequity and the benefits of DEI in the workplace. Alongside a network of advocates and practitioners, the program is co-creating a movement to build a deeper understanding of DEI and system-based solutions.
