We are a small group of Chief Executives working in charitable foundations in the UK. We have come together in a personal capacity to exchange practical experience, ideas and challenges with regard to our role as leaders in promoting racial justice within our foundations and the foundation sector more broadly.
We recognize the responsibility that white people, and particularly white people in leadership positions, have for taking overdue action on these issues.
We are meeting on a regular basis to discuss how we can use the positions we hold and the power we have to help to create change.
To be transparent, and as a first step in being accountable to others – particularly People of Colour and people from Black and Minority Ethnic Communities – we will use this site to publish summaries of the issues we discuss.
