PRIs provide capital to high-risk, mission aligned endeavors. Unfortunately, less than 1% of all investments within the US are allocated to women of color founded organizations due to the prejudiced assumption that they are inherently high-risk. The result is that many foundations refuse to fund women and POC led organizations once PRI funds run dry, despite the overwhelming evidence that proves diverse organizations have a higher rate of return and are more successful. In our session, you’ll change the way you view PRIs, learn how to check bias, and discover alternative investment models your foundation can utilize to maximize impact.
