Our Equity Journey Begins
DEI journey at Impact 100 started by hosting Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Mixers last year. We also focused on Education through implicit bias training as well as the creation of small Equity Conversation groups in the fall. We will dive into learning about racial disparities via equitable grant making during 2020 grant review.
