Dignity and Justice
A Brown Paper on Humanizing the Workplace for BIWOC+
Spurred by their personal experiences of harm in non-profits, The Melanin Collective co-founders Kaitlyn Ramirez Borysiewicz and Doris Nadine Quintanilla conducted a survey of Black, Indigenous, and women of color (BIWOC+) in social sector organizations. This brown paper, co-authored by EBDI president Ahmmad Brown, contextualizes the survey's findings with Kaitlyn and Doris' experiences in the social sector. Notably, their analysis identifies the progressive veil™, a phenomenon wherein internal violence and discrimination is obscured by an organization's outwardly progressive social mission.
Innovation by Tigerlily Foundation's #InclusionPledge Partners
A Report and Case Studies for Health and Cancer Care Equity
Black women suffer from breast cancer at a disproportionately high rate and are more likely to experience discrimination in care. To address these harmful disparities, EBDI's client-partner Tigerlily Foundation created the #InclusionPledge as a tool to educate and foster accountability among breast cancer organizations. This report explains why Black women are disproportionately affected by breast cancer and details some of the effective changes #InclusionPledge partner organizations have made in response.
Voices from the Movement
Toward an Equitable Farmed Animal Protection Movement
The struggle for racial justice is playing out across the country: in courtrooms, in the streets, and in the media. What about within other justice movements? EBDI worked with client-partner Encompass to explore questions of equity, particularly related to ethnoracial identity, within the farmed animal protection movement (FAPM). We produced an action-oriented report based on extensive qualitative data collection from FAPM members.
