As with all committees at Washington Women’s Foundation, this Partner Grant experience provides the opportunity for peer-to-peer learning and skill building workshops, each designed to challenge our members to look beyond their personal perspectives. Participating members will:
- Better understand systemic and institutional racism, especially within our criminal justice system.
- Explore their own relationships to privilege and oppression.
- Come to a shared understanding of the terms “race,” “prejudice,” “bias,” “social justice” and “social justice philanthropy.”
- Become better allies and more informed philanthropists.
