It’s About Equity, Not Kindness: Accessible and Inclusive Grantmaking Practices | Disability Inclusion in Philanthropy Webinar Series
About the Series
This two-part webinar series will suggest organizational (internal) and programmatic (external) strategies to consider when approaching disability inclusion and accessibility in philanthropy. These presentations, featuring foundation staff with disabilities will answer questions like, ‘how do I start the conversation about disability inclusion with managers/executive teams?’‘ what can I do to make our grant application and grant-making processes more accessible?’ and ‘what can we do so our entire organizations more inclusive of people with disabilities?’
Participants can expect the panelists to cover topics including accessibility as part of diversity, equity, and inclusion strategies, the value of intersectional approaches to grantmaking, and actionable steps funders can take to address accessibility and disability inclusion in their philanthropic efforts. Please join us to learn more about how to address ableism in our workplaces and incorporate a disability lens into your organization and programs.
Following the first webinar, this 60-minute panel discussion will illustrate the value of accessibility and disability inclusion as part of intersectional and equitable grantmaking practices. Panel members, including Ability Centralstaffand representatives from other disability funders, will outline some of the inequitable practices of traditional nonprofit and philanthropy structures, suggest ways in which funders can adjust their practices to be more inclusive of people with disabilities, make connections to tenets of the disability justice movement, and discuss how any funder can incorporate disability-led projects to their issue area. This presentation will be great for program officers, grant managers, entire philanthropy teams, or anyone interested in incorporating disability inclusion in their funding practices. Participants will leave with actionable steps their organization can take to improve accessibility in their grantmaking processes, as well as resources to find additional information.
