Inclusive Coasts Initiative Virtual Workshop: Building Partnerships With Your Community

October 21, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


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 second session of our grant implementers series. This interactive workshop will focus on assessing stakeholder and rights holder needs and building intersectional partnerships and support networks. Please note that the workshop will be capped at 50 attendees to ensure robust dialogue and breakout rooms 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 completed two other webinars and concluded our grant making series earlier this year. The other two sessions were not recorded to encourage open conversation between participants.

The next grant implementers workshop is been scheduled for November 2, 2022. Additional details and registration information on those events will be announced in the coming weeks.
