Please join us for the first CFO meeting of the year. This will be a practical, hands-on meeting, introducing you to the “centering vendor diversity” resource list. This list, a work in progress, emerged from our July session on Centering Diversity When Engaging Vendors.

As CFOs and other staff responsible for our organization’s infrastructure, we recognize that diversifying a foundation’s pool of outside vendors and contacts can be a strategic tool to put non-grant dollars to work in expanding diversity equity and inclusive practices.

After the July meeting, a work group formed, made up of Rihab Babiker at the Center for Effective Philanthropy, Jug Chokshi at New England Foundation for the Arts, Sue Fulton the Endowment for Health, and Mark Paley at the Hyams Foundation to draft a template for the resource list. They also conferred with the Network’s REDI work group. At this meeting, work group members will launch the list; provide a chance for you to explore it; and seek your feedback. We want to collectively strengthen this resourc s so that we can use it for its intended purpose: centering diversity when engaging vendors.

We will also dedicate time to catching up and sharing updates.
