Please email Hannah Stevens at hannah.stevens@ariadne-network.eu if you would like to know more.


We are all different, with different identities and experiences but our systems often force us to be defined by labels e.g. by our nationality, our sexuality or our race or country of origin. Donors are no different, we regularly organise our work by thematic programme e.g. women’s rights, LGBTI rights, racial justice, disability rights. These categorisations encourage siloes that can negatively affect people facing with multiple forms of discrimination and experience the multiplier effects in their everyday life.

This Grant Skills Day, organised in partnership with the Global Philanthropy Project, will explore how donors can take a more ‘intersectional’ approach to their work, recognising what the gaps in their current programmes may be and finding ways to be more inclusive.

For example, how does this approach lend itself to addressing the issues of women of colour? Or an immigrant who is also a trans person with a disability? People are complex and have many, varied and overlapping identity markers which cannot easily be compartmentalised.

The day will begin with a master class in the concept of intersectionality and what it means for donors, led by Dr. Emilia Roig, the Founder and Executive Director of the Centre for Intersectional Justice, a Berlin-based organisation combatting intersecting forms of inequality and discrimination in Europe. Participants will then have the opportunity to learn from donors and practitioners who are employing this approach in their work. As part of this, participants will be encouraged to identify changes, however small, they could make in their own work or institution in addition to thinking about the social, policy or legislative levers that they could engage. An agenda with furher details will follow on the Ariadne portal soon.

Please note that, as this is designed as an interactive workshop, we are capping the number of participants at 55, and thus spaces are limited. We recommend that you register as early as possible to be sure of a place.
