@Shaddy: Stop requiring interim or final reports?
Supriya Lopez Pillai she/hers
01:32:29
Re: the funding question. We at HL are one of the few funders that actually support work of healing. It would be really great if funders could prioritize resources for pausing— reflection, meditation, space. Also consider how we as funders can internalize the practices themselves and prioritize that.
Lisa Parker
01:32:40
Highly recommend looking at the Durfee Foundation website to see how they have supported grantee “pausing.”

Shaady Salehi (she/her)
01:34:50
Yes, Durfee’s sabbatical program and stanton fellowships are an excellent example! www.durfee.org
Shruti Jayaraman
01:35:16
We can write it into every investment proposal
Shruti Jayaraman
01:35:33
We have also played with inviting frontline staff across our investments in for sessions together, e.g., on vicarious trauma and healing
