It’s one thing for funders to include equity in a mission statement and another entirely for organizations to take real, antiracist action. The third episode of Impact Audio is focused on values and techniques that can help grantmakers put good intentions into practice, with Luther Hughes and Lydia Boss, Program Managers at Artist Trust. Founded in 1986, Artist Trust is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to supporting Washington artists working in all creative disciplines.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

• How to prioritize relationships for equity

• Tips for orienting a review panel on your mission

• The value of trust and qualitative outcome-assessment

• Why taking a stand matters

Drawn from a longer conversation on strategies for enhancing equitable practices in grantmaking, these excerpts feature key takeaways to help you get started. We hope they serve you well.
