Systems change requires doing the hard work, which includes shifting power and agency to the community. The racial reckoning has elevated that work for many organizations and governments. During this webinar, you will learn what groups in Philadelphia are doing to engage in participatory grantmaking -- the practice of transferring decision-making authority to the communities being served -- and how it advances equity. Hear about lessons learned, pain points, how to sell it to your decision-makers, and how to ensure genuine inclusion.
