Racial Justice Dialogues

Organized by: Catalyst of San Diego & Imperial Counties

Different sectors, including philanthropy, are having to confront the reality that race equity is no longer a conversation they can put off or avoid.

This includes the ability to connect dots, show up in an emotionally intelligent way, listen actively and empathically, and know when to get out of the way. It also requires a clear understanding of power, and how power imbalances between funders and grantee partners are exacerbated by race, gender, and class inequities. Cultivating and advancing effective interpersonal skills requires practitioners to bring self-awareness, self-regulation,…
