Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Natural and man-made disasters create food, water and healthcare shortages for displaced people. Poverty and governmental neglect cause some populations around the world to go without clean water, access to medicine and education. Lack of resources hinder people's ability to thrive intellectually and economically. Baitulmaal addresses these issues through emergency humanitarian aid that includes food, water and medicine as well as sustenance aid for impoverished areas that lack water wells, educational facilities and materials, and shelter. Baitulmaal also has seasonal programs to enrich the lives of people suffering from poverty.

Data

  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
