Owning Who We Are: Strategies for Assessing and Communicating Equity in Rural Organizations

Questions about diversity, equity, and inclusion on grant applications can set us back on our heels. How do we answer if our communities are 2%, 5%, or 15% people of color? Are we diverse enough to receive funding? Is it even worth applying? YES! Funders and grant-makers are looking for partners that are building intentional organizations that reflect their communities. Join us for a dynamic conversation focused on rethinking how rural nonprofits communicate facets of diversity by answering: “who are we?”, “who is our community”, and “how do we grow into ourselves”.

In this session, DeeDee LeMier of Charities Review Council will share insight from grantmakers to help you submit stronger grant applications, build confidence in understanding and articulating existing organizational diversity, and identify tools for setting goals that reflect the individuals and community you serve.
