Why philanthropy in the Greater Washington region is:

The racism of today is historically embedded in our institutions and often presents in biases of which we are unaware. For those committed to issues as varied as education or housing, the arts or health, race-based preconceptions and actions, whether conscious or unconscious, can shape the effectiveness of philanthropy.

Join us as WRAG puts racism on the table through a series of learning and training opportunities for funders. Videos of the fundamental sessions on structural racism, white privilege, and implicit bias are available here, along with viewing guides, discussion guides, and commentary from local philanthropists.
