Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goal is to obtain funding for operational and administrative cost. We are also working to leverage our partnerships. We have formed an Community Committee to encourage the exchange of information and ensure our clients are receiving the best quality service.

We have formed a committee, Community 20/20 for partners who service Baltimore.

Our organization will host these meetings quarterly, usually at the public library.

We've host our first meeting and our next is scheduled in April.

Data
  • 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.
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.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
