. @davidbperrin recommends caucus groups by identity, e.g. by race, class, gender, to "unwork" personal conditions w/ others like you, to have compass for when go out into spaces w/ others. 👉🏻 This is great approach for white folks on learning journey about race. @familygiving

Laura McCargar @Perrinfamilyfdn: Part of the work includes diving in at the moment and allowing yourself to sit [in the potential discomfort]. #NCFPweb

Laura McCargar of @Perrinfamilyfdn: You cannot have the external work without the internal work. #NCFPweb

The necessity of doing the internal work/reflection on power, privilege and race is particularly challenging for funders to accept. Internal awareness, understanding and action is critical to dismantling white supremacy culture in philanthropy and building a Race Equity Culture

Frances Padilla of @UHCF_CT on the need for partnerships: “The issues we are all trying to address are incredibly complex and interrelated, and involve multiple systems.” #YPC2019
