Program: Equity: Reducing Barriers to Grant Funding
Join us to continue the conversation around DEI (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion) from last September's GPA/WVDO Grants Conference! We'll review the process of the Equity Grant given at the Conference, and the recommendations on reducing barriers to grant funding developed by the Review Committee. Carly Brown from Oregon Community Foundation (who was instrumental in OCF's funding of the Equity Grant) and Carol Cheney, Diversity Equity and Inclusion Manager at Meyer Memorial Trust, will join us to share their experiences and lessons learned in looking at the grant application process through an Equity lens. And together we'll explore how grant-makers and GPA/grant professionals could work together to address/overcome Equity-related barriers to grant funding.

Cost:  Free for GPA members; $15 for non-members.
