From Colour Blind to Race Conscious

Addressing the issue and gaps of cultural diversity in the Australian philanthropic sector needs to be inclusive, non-tokenistic and created in genuine collaboration with culturally diverse leaders and communities.

The Macquarie Group Foundation, Perpetual and Philanthropy Australia are partnering with the Jumbunna Institute and Centre for Social Impact UNSW, to explore how cultural diversity is reflected on philanthropic boards and to also understand how beneficiaries are being supported or left behind in funding decisions.
