Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Promoting Diversity

Philanthropy Ohio provides the network, tools and knowledge to help people engaged in philanthropy become more effective, powerful change agents in their communities. Diversity, Equity and Inclusion are among Philanthropy Ohio’s core values. We believe that greater diversity, equity and inclusion is a matter of fairness and effectiveness in our profession. To have real impact in a diverse and complex world, organized philanthropy must effectively include these voices and draw upon them to intentionally engage issues of diversity, equity and inclusion in an authentic way. We encourage all foundation leaders to sustain leadership commitment, authorization, learning and outreach and strategically and intentionally advance diversity, equity and inclusion in our organizations and grantmaking.
