The link to register is here.
The events over the last year have forever changed how we think about diversity, equity, and inclusion. Organizations, from the smallest to those that circle the globe, are reassessing how our systems, our ways of work, and even our everyday lives need to be analyzed to root out inequity and make lasting change. Non-profit organizations and funders included. And with that interest has come a cascade of grant opportunities tied to DEI.
Grant Professionals Association has long embraced these concepts, and our chapter plans to take an active role in those conversations. This session will be a first step in this journey, introducing this discussion and triaging immediate needs and concerns we as grant professionals have as we seek to drive change in our organizations and seek funding for DEI efforts.
We are honored to have Kelli King-Jackson, Senior Program Officer with The Simmons Foundation, lead us in this initial discussion and give us insight from a funder’s perspective. To help guide our conversation, we are asking you to reply to the survey that will be sent with your registration confirmation.
Free for members; $10 for non-members. The link to register is here.
