Collecting and Using Demographic Data to Drive Equity (PEAK Mideast)

For philanthropy to advance equity in marginalized communities, we need to be able to understand the demographics of the organizations being funded (and declined), the people being served, and the communities that are impacted. However, there are many barriers to collecting demographic data that need to be overcome.

Join PEAK Mideast and their special guests PEAK Rocky Mountain in exploring this vital topic. Whether your organization is a data collection veteran or just beginning to think about surveying grantees, this panel of sector experts and funders will enrich how you approach this process by exploring

  1. the barriers that keep grantmakers and nonprofits from collecting and acting on data;
  2. recommendations for balancing grantee and funder needs in deciding whether and how to collect demographic data; and
  3. how to make the case at your own organization for improving or implementing demographic data collection.
