This Equity Analysis of Group Membership Template was developed by the Collaborative Leadership in Practice (CLiP)* project to strengthen collaborative and equitable leadership in the non-profit sector – specifically in the context of partnerships and networks. For more information and resources about CLiP, visit clip-lcp.org.
This template was developed to help you recognize and reflect with others on whether your organization, committees, partnerships and networks include people with a variety of lived experiences (e.g. different social locations, abilities and gender). Since identities, social locations and systems of oppression that form individuals’ lived experiences also intersect, including people who experience intersectionality can bring new perspectives to decision-making for your programs, policies and partnership initiatives.
The people who may be interested in using this template include:
– Board members;
– Executive directors;
– Coordinators who are developing a research or program advisory group; and
– Members of a partnership.
