"CPCP has been an important partner in helping our team examine our own work. Rebecca, Sona and Michael push us to consider how we are benefitting from, contributing to and now working to dismantle racial inequities in our work. It is vital that grantmakers begin this internal work before they expect it from their grant recipients.

We are better equipped as a staff to live our value of equity as a result of our work with CPCP."

– Jill Paulsen, Interim Executive Director, Cuyahoga Arts and Culture

"The work of CPCP continues to be of enormous value to the Old Globe Theater. By facilitating questions around our values and our commitment to them we were able to transcend decisions made from intuition. We coalesced around big ideas and developed a shared language. This language guides us in service of the public good. It’s transformed the way we view ourselves and our role in society."

– Freedome Bradley-Ballentine, Director of Arts Engagement, Old Globe Theatre
