Research indicates that access to high-quality policy materials, sample documents, and training programs helps foundation executives and trustees take voluntary action towards increasing diversity, equity, and inclusion. D5 is helping the field identify exemplary policies and practices and develop a more coordinated approach to making them available. Through our efforts, D5 is promoting greater intentionality and voluntary action among foundations so that diversity, equity, and inclusion are no longer seen as “extras” but as part of the core work of philanthropy.
|Develop policies and practices to support diverse foundations and ensure that high-quality educational resources related to diversity, equity, and inclusion, and are more readily accessible to foundations across the sector.|
|Sustain voluntary action on diversity, equity, and inclusion by growing the coalition into a network of philanthropy infrastructure organizations and grantmakers committed to and capable of growing diversity in philanthropy.|

This analysis of policies, practices, and programs that advance DEI is the result of a comprehensive scan of hundreds of written and web-based resources from philanthropy and the field of organizational effectiveness. Commissioned by D5 and conducted by JustPartners, Inc., the scan identifies key elements critical to advancing DEI, as well as many “on-ramps” to help organizations take the first steps toward becoming more diverse, inclusive, and equitable.

D5 offers a range of programming that presents research and resources to grantmakers as a way to help them apply lessons learned to their own efforts to advance DEI.

The Take 5 Campaign mobilizes champions of diversity, equity, and inclusion to build support for the movement among their peers. By the end of 2015, 100 champions will pledge to take 5 actions to help advance DEI in the field of philanthropy, thereby expanding the movement of foundations committed to advancing DEI.
