FutureGood DEI Leaders Network


FutureGood facilitates a network of brilliant philanthropic leaders that are leading diversity, equity, and inclusion change efforts at their foundations. This program was launched in 2019 and it is supported by generous investments from The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, The Annie E. Casey Foundation, and the Margaret A. Cargill Philanthropies. We are accepting new nominations and self-nominations for this program, which meets virtually. Reach out to us to learn more.

FutureGood has curated an index of the best DEI Resources available to the field today, featuring the thought leadership of this dynamic group.
