I’m glad you wrote this, because I’m thinking about a project focused on diversity and inclusion, and I haven’t figured out how to do it right. Good timing.
But also I don’t see how I can go from the negatives you point out here to positives that I can work from.
It would satisfy the constraints you’re talking about here if I searched out an existing org founded by people of color, and then supported it. But I haven’t found any such thing. And that shouldn’t be a fatal problem. I should still move forward.
So, thoughts welcome on how to do it right, not just on how to do it wrong.
