Inclusive Coasts Initiative: Designing Your Program
January 25 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pmFree
Restore America’s Estuaries, with the help of the National Science Foundation, aims to improve diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice (DEIJ) in grantmaking, project design, and implementation in the coastal sector through The Inclusive Coasts Initiative. This initiative provides opportunities for grantmakers, project implementers, educators, and members of the coastal community to engage in two series of workshops: one geared towards grant-makers and a second geared towards project implementers.
We are excited to open registration for the third session of our grant implementers series. This interactive workshop will focus on creating inclusive program designs and program planning methods at 1:00-2:30 PM Eastern on January 25, 2023. Please note that the workshop will be capped at 50 attendees to ensure robust dialogue and will not be recorded by RAE to allow for greater freedom of discussion.
This will be a safe space for learning and collaborating, so please do not hesitate to ask questions or share opinions; but we do ask everyone to be respectful of their fellow participants. We encourage attendees to come with an example of a project they are working on to frame their engagement in this session.

If this is your first Inclusive Coasts Initiative workshop, the grantmaking series launched on Thursday, February 24, 2022. The initial webinar included a presentation on inclusive practices in grantmaking followed by a discussion on barriers to access and the needs of diverse organizations. If you missed the webinar, you can watch the recording. We’ve completed two additional webinars and concluded our grant making series earlier this year. The other two sessions were not recorded to encourage open conversation between participants. Upon completion of the third grant making workshop we began the grant implementing series with the topics of understanding your community and building partnerships with your community. The most recent workshop, building partnerships with your community, was recorded and you can watch it here.
