The disability community, comprised of more than 1 million people, is New York City’s largest and most diverse minority group. Despite efforts to make practices and policies more diverse, equitable, and inclusive, foundations often leave disability entirely out of these conversations. Now, as people with disabilities successfully advocate to make the City accessible for all residents, the philanthropic community must self-assess using the same lens.
Join us for a discussion to better understand the primary concerns and issues affecting the disability community, learn how foundations can encourage their boards, staff, and grantees to incorporate disability into their DEI discussions, and begin to make incremental changes to improve accessibility. The session will provide a safe, non-judgmental space to ask questions and learn from foundation staff working in this area and those with lived experiences.
We are a nonprofit too. Donate to Giving Compass to help us guide donors toward practices that advance equity.
