About Equity in the Center

Equity in the Center (EiC) works to shift mindsets, practices and systems in the social sector to increase race equity. We envision a future where nonprofit and philanthropic organizations are characterized by a Race Equity Culture, meaning they implement and advance race equity internally while advocating for and centering it in work externally.
