Over the past few years, equity has emerged as a key issue in American society. It has been described as the “defining issue of our time” by authors and speakers in various fields, including education, community development, and juvenile justice, among others.

Philanthropy also has taken up the call for equity, and several foundations are working to incorporate varying degrees of an equity focus into their work. But how are they doing so?
