Our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Initiative

As part of its five-year strategic roadmap, the Hampton Roads Community Foundation launched an initiative focused on diversity, equity, and inclusion in 2018. Initially focused on racial equity, we have established four goals:

  1. Ensure that the community foundation’s commitment to racial equity informs our work, including our internal policies and practices, engagement with residents and community partners, and investments in communities.
  2. Better align the community foundation’s grantmaking and scholarship programs with our goals for racially equitable outcomes across the region.
  3. Facilitate courageous community-wide conversations about both the history of racism and opportunities for racial equity and healing in Hampton Roads.
  4. Provide leadership through collaborative action to address systemic racism in the region.
