PBP does a great job compared to many organizations in advancing equity in our work AND in how we run things internally day to day. But we can always do better! Funds could be used to hire external consultants for training, coaching and/or evaluation to support PBP in further diversifying our staff and board representation, and improving policies that advance recruiting, retaining, and advancing a diverse team.
A key output for our broader constituency could be a blog post or short case study on what we learned, resournces we used (e.g., publicly available guides or blogs we found helpful), how we've changed. This can can be useful for organizations and agencies that are tackling broader equity efforts while launching and growing PB.

PBP is beginning to focus on schools and wants to include more young people on its board and advisory board. This will allow the organization to be guided and shaped by some of the key folks that PBP is designed to empower.
In order to set up a functional pipeline, I believe that we need support and resources for young people that are balancing this with other responsibilities.
It would be great to work out what this could cover with the team.

People are working hard to bring PB to funders, communities and institutions. It makes it easier to have the same messaging and legitimacy when we have some cool and uniform swag. It also allows our amplifiers to get excited about working with us while doing the work. We need to outfit our movement.

More effectively organize to win PB in their community. The current PBP toolkit is from 2014, it could use an update, and to be made more interactive.

The PB in schools video is great, but it's very focused on high schools. As more elementary and middle schools get interested in PB, we need a short video to show how it works and why school leaders should try it. It should also show how PB can be used for parent engagement. This could maybe be a new version of the general PB video, or a separate one for lower grade schools. [idea came from another school parent]

A training portal or series -online, in person and/or via Skype, to train folks across the country to be able to start and lead PB discussions in their communities. This could include a series of trainings and webinars, and printed collateral for the new trainers to give to interested PB folks.

$10,000 TA services to an institution who meets specific equity criteria that is interested in serving as a pilot evaluation site. These funds would not cover PB project implementation but could support or supplement PBP's contracted services.
I envision a space where interested agencies could apply and send in information about why their location or institution would be the best place to bring PB.

Review what equity is and make sure that thier PB process is mapped to equity indicators. There are really great indicators that come out of Seattle.
Here is the city of oakland's equity indicator report: https://cao-94612.s3.amazonaws.com/documents/2018-Equity-Indicators-Full-Report.pdf
here is a powerpoint presentation from the city of Seattle: https://www.seattle.gov/Documents/Departments/SeattlePlanningCommission/MinutesAndAgendas/CompPlanEquityIDPsandIndicatorsOPCDPresentation02252016.pdf
There is a really great one pager that the City of Oakland uses that I think could be a tool adapted for our use with instructions and measurement guidelines
