Over the past several years the national conversation about race, inequality, and power in the United States has grown in both urgency and intensity. In parallel to these social trends, more businesses, nonprofit organizations, and philanthropies are becoming better informed about the role of race and ethnicity in social and economic and disparities. The purpose of this study was to conduct action research to develop a racial equity stance at the Eugene and Agnes E. Meyer Foundation in Washington, DC. This study also examined the role of cultural competence in supporting the development of a racial equity stance. The impetus for this research was founded on the premise that the social sector can be equipped to meet the challenge of achieving racial justice. This study examined the process of one foundation’s attempt to build its capacity to embed a racial equity lens in its operations and grantmaking strategy.
