Members-Only Workshop – Disability Justice: Lessons from Participatory Grantmaking

Date: Wednesday, July 24, 2024
Time: 1:00 – 3:00 PM ET

This members-only workshop will provide an introductory overview of the guiding principles, models, and considerations for creating a participatory grantmaking process rooted in disability justice. Participants will hear from grantmakers who have developed different participatory grantmaking models about their learnings, highlights, and recommendations. Participants will also have the opportunity to assess and reflect on their own institutions, programs, and portfolios, and leave with an action plan for deepening practices of disability justice and participatory processes.

This workshop is only available to members of the Disability & Philanthropy Forum. If you work in philanthropy but are not a Forum member, we invite you to apply to become one!
