Detroit Capacity Building Forum: How We Collaborate

The 2021 Detroit Capacity Building Forum was about creating space for inspiration and action. We started from the assumption that as nonprofits, consultants, funders, and more, we share a common north star: advancing racial and social equity in the communities we serve. We started from the assumption that to get there, we’re going to need to transform systems and practices that perpetuate inequity.

That can only be done through collaboration. So how do we land on a shared playbook for collaboration—something that reflects shared values and language that we can return to again and again as we make decisions every day?

At this forum, we collectively created that playbook with 70+ social change allies.
