Cultural Equity & Inclusions Workshops

As of fall 2018, applicants to the OGP program are required to submit board-adopted statements, policies, or plans that outline their commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and access as part of their applications.

To assist applicants with preparing for this requirement, the Department of Arts and Culture is offering free workshops designed to help applicants clarify and outline your organization’s relationship to cultural equity and inclusion, or deepen the policies you already have in place.

Sign up soon. The final CEII workshop of the year will be held on September 7!
