Black Voices in Grants Management

About this issue

Racial equity is an issue that is consuming philanthropy, but even though the conversation is flowing, progress lags, and the fallout is ongoing.

In this issue, a range of contributors are giving voice to the experience of Black grants management professionals, highlighting their work and ideas for building inclusive cultures, equitable grantmaking practices, allyship, and more. With additional context and support from new research and PEAK resources, we’ve dedicated this edition, in the words of guest editor Roland Kennedy, Jr., “to bring Black voices in grants management into the light and invite the broader PEAK membership and philanthropic community into some of these unheard experiences.”

Co-editors Betsy Reid and Melissa Sines welcome you to a re-envisioned Journal, aiming to stake out a space for members, experts, and the PEAK team to bring their best thinking forward.
