In this webinar, two funders — Caroline Altman-Smith of The Kresge Foundation and Jennifer Wei of The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation — joined our senior director Idalia Fernandez to share their experiences striving to make their capacity-building offerings more equitable. Building on the field guide, they share stories, frameworks, concrete tips, lessons learned, and questions they’re still grappling with as they’ve reconsidered their assumptions and approaches to capacity building. They talk about the ins and outs of their capacity-building programs, feedback they’ve received, how they navigate power dynamics with nonprofits, how they navigate internal organizational barriers, what still feels hard about centering equity, and more.

Watch the webinar here and below. Read the field guide here.
