Our Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Journey Together

Impact100 Sonoma is a group of smart, capable and determined women. We know that alone we can do good, but together we can do better. And that’s why we join together to make a collective impact in Sonoma Valley. 

As we reckon with the impact of the global pandemic on our community, and rightly adjust our grantmaking to address urgent needs, we must also recognize that there is another crisis in our midst--the crisis of racism. 

In June of 2020, Impact100 Sonoma’s board met and unanimously approved a commitment to using our collective power and resources to address racism in Sonoma Valley. While we believe that injustice, inequality and structural racism exist everywhere, including in Sonoma Valley, we also believe that these problems are solvable if we invest in solutions and equip ourselves to dismantle the systems and structures that allow them to thrive.

Our resulting plan for 2021 is a three-phase Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) training program that will help our members recognize our role in racist systems, cultivate awareness of racial equity issues, and develop and practice the skills necessary to eradicate them from our community. With the selection of Epoch Education as our training partner, Impact100 will have the benefit of a national leader in DEI who also has local roots, as it was founded by Sonoma resident Dr. Nancy Dome. 

Three Phases:

  1. Board Intensive (January 2021)

  2. All-Member Ongoing Training (March - December 2021)

  3. Valley-Wide Nonprofit Training (June - December 2021)
