What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Implicit Bias Research

CARE will work with Harvard's Project Implicit to measure implicit bias in the Animal Welfare field. The respondents will consist of all professions inside an animal shelter or rescue or foundation that donates to a shelter or rescue. All positions will be studied, including Board Members, Volunteers and Staff.

Proximate Leaders are SUBJECT MATTER EXPERTS on the challenges facing their communities. Their solutions are often structured around insights only found through lived experiences. When given the opportunity to lead, Proximate Leaders are far more capable of finding sustainable solutions for their community of friends, love ones, and neighbors than any outreach effort from an outside organization.

CARE is assisting these community leaders with the long awaited support they need through grants, legal assistance and augmentation of skills. Because of the generosity of donors like you, CARE is helping to start several New 501c3 Animal Welfare Organizations, all lead by Proximate Leaders of Color.

The CARE CENTER model will not always include a Building. Some CARE CENTER organizations will be focused on Access to Care via Transport Services. Other organizations will focus on community awareness of issues related to Animal Care and Control, Spay & Neuter, Puppy Mills and Adoption. While some organizations will deliver services from within a building. CARE CENTERS will be designed around solving and preventing problems, so their shape and size will vary to meet their community’s unique challenges and desires.

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.
