Diversity and inclusion is the area foundations have the ‘furthest to travel’, report finds

Charitable foundations consider diversity, equity and inclusion as the area in which they have “the further distance to travel”, according to a new report.The report, published today by the Association of Charitable Foundations, highlights examples of ambitious and effective practice from the ACF’s Stronger Foundations scheme, which has produced six reports focusing on different areas of good practice.The project produced 40 “pillars of good practice” and included the release of a self-assessment tool designed to help foundations score themselves in those areas.The ACF said 110 self-assessment surveys were completed by more than 50 of its members and it was sharing the anonymised results to give a better understanding of where foundations are the strongest and where they have work to do.The self-assessment surveys asked foundations to score themselves from one to five in each of the areas, where one was “not yet considered” and five was “fully embedded”.The four lowest-scoring areas were all in the diversity, equity and inclusion bracket, with the lowest area being “We express our DEI commitment, policies and practices publicly”, with an average of 2.2 out of five.
