Racial Justice

Collaborations

Just Foundations Initiative

Supporting foundation leaders to deliver racial justice in their organisations

Aims and activities

Just Foundations Initiative (JFI) is a group of Chief Executives working in UK foundations. We come together in a personal capacity. Our monthly meetings enable us to exchange experience, ideas and challenges so that we best advance racial justice in our foundations and the sector more broadly.

Our meetings are also a space where we support and challenge each other and exchange ideas for action. We publish notes of our meetings as part of our accountability.

It is acknowledged that funders may choose to use the code-list itself for other purposes in different ways – for example for their staff profile, reporting percentages against categories.
