CEII Workshops

As of fall 2018, all applicants to the Organizational Grant Program are required to submit board-adopted statements, policies, or plans (SPP) that outline their commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and access as part of their applications. To assist applicants in preparing for this requirement, Arts and Culture offers free workshops for current and potential OGP grantees. These workshops are designed to help organizations either clarify and begin outlining their relationship to cultural equity and inclusion, or to deepen the policies already in place.

NOTE: Attendance at the CEII workshop does not count toward the OGP application workshop requirement for new applicants or applicants that did not receive funding the last time they applied.
