USBC Featured in W.K. Kellogg Foundation Racial Equity Spotlight
The W.K. Kellogg Foundation (WKKF) published a spotlight titled “Organizational Journeys in Centering Racial Equity” featuring the U.S. Breastfeeding Committee. In it, five WKKF grantees share insights about centering racial equity in their organizational structures, practices, and operations, providing compelling examples of nonprofit organizations charting their own unique courses toward racial equity, and the challenges, successes, pain points, and joys experienced along the way. The USBC spotlight shares the story of the organization’s decade-long journey to advance racial equity in maternal child health policy and practices, starting with its immediate sphere of influence within the organization, and then extending to its member organizations and partners. It also offers candid reflections useful for other collaboratives and networks similarly navigating the complexity of bringing diverse organizations together on a transformative journey.
