What’s Informing Us

New Norms

May 2021

Anti-racism and social justice work requires examining how we do things, why we do them, and asking who really benefits. In this examination, many organizations are rethinking and redesigning their approaches, norms, and practices to be more responsive, racially just, and rooted in humanity. Here are just a few projects and people who have inspired us over the last several months to envision enduring change and re-imagine what a “new normal” means going forward:

Chronicle of Philanthropy | Diversity Is Not Enough in Fundraising Offices

The Center for Effective Philanthropy | The Hard Work of Philanthropy: A Case for Leisure

Interaction Institute for Social Change | Beautiful Questioning for Social Change

Nonprofit Quarterly | Nonprofit Leadership at a Crossroads

BU Today | BU Center for Antiracist Research Teams with the Boston Globe to Launch The Emancipator
