What can a consultant do to advance equity, diversity, and inclusion?

It’s become fashionable for people and institutions in the nonprofit and philanthropic sector to reflect — and in some cases — act on principles of equity, diversity and inclusion. These conversations lead to conversations about staffing and board makeup, as well as programmatic and grantmaking policies and goals. For example, Funders Together to End Homelessness, an organization I serve as a board member, recently released its Commitment to Racial Equity. Many funders and organizations have declared that they are working with an “equity lens” and reflecting on how it affects their processes and operations (e.g. see the recent article by Claire Peeps on invitation only grantmaking).
