Philanthropy's Diversity Challenge - Special feature

September 5, 2017

"Nothing about us without us" was a slogan coined by disability rights activists to communicate the idea that no policy should be decided by any representative without the full and direct participation of members of the group(s) affected. Many working in philanthropy would be sympathetic to this principle. Being in touch with the people you aim to serve is not just a sound moral imperative but also likely to make an effective philanthropic strategy. A lack of diversity on boards and at staff level "probably limits their intelligence about what is happening on the ground" notes European Foundation Centre Chief Executive, Gerry Salole, who suggests that foundations would be well advised to "reflect the streets."Alliance issue: Philanthropy's Diversity Challenge; September 2017, Volume 22, Number 3.

Special Feature

'Inclusivity' includes the disabled, too

September 5, 2017

Despite mandatory requirements for disability employment, employment for people with disability in India remains abysmally low according to the National Centre for the Promotion of Employment of Disabled Persons. Of those who are employed, 70 per cent are physically challenged; less than 1 per cent have cognitive impairments. What's more, walking the talk on disability employment appears to be as difficult for philanthropic organizations in India as for any Indian company, government office or non-profit organization, even for those who are working in the area.Alliance issue: Philanthropy's Diversity Challenge; September 2017, Volume 22, Number 6.
