Participants will be guided in reflecting on how their organizations’ missions and core values align with and support the goals of the Cultural Equity and Inclusion Initiative (CEII). All workshop participants will leave with a beginning draft statement, policy, and plan as well as strategies for communicating with their boards to allow for adoption in advance of the fall Organization Grant Program application deadline.
Attendees should bring a copy of their organization’s mission statement and core values (if applicable).
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
Prospective OGP applicants applying in Fall 2021 are encouraged to attend, particularly those that do not yet have formal cultural equity policies or plans, (as relates to staff, board, and/or programming) in place. Current OGP grantees who would like to update their cultural equity policies or plans are also welcome. Attendees should be individual(s) who have influence and ability to engage the organization’s staff and board in this work, and/or have a current role and responsibility related to the organization’s cultural equity work. Teams from organizations, including board members, are strongly encouraged to attend this virtual workshop.
