Part of the Inclusive Coasts Initiative’s goals is to provide opportunities for grantmakers, project implementers, educators, and members of the coastal community to engage in two series of workshops:
- one series for grantmakers focused on improving promotion and access to funding opportunities for traditionally marginalized communities
- one series for project implementers aimed at improving collaboration and communication on project siting, design, and completion to incorporate just and equitable outcomes for all coastal communities
The Inclusive Coasts Initiative kicked off with the Grantmakers series in February 2022. Topics included:
- February 28: Inclusive Coasts Initiative: Improving Equity in Grantmaking
- March 31: Rethinking Funding Application Processes
- April 26: Partners, Communities and Program Design
Phase two of our workshop series was aimed at project implementors in September 2022.
- Sept 28: Understanding your Community
- October 21: Building Partnerships with your Community
- Workshop #3 Coming Soon: Designing your Program
RAE will also collaborate with the working group, consultant, and workshop participants to develop resources and best practice guidance from ICI workshops and discussions. These documents will be made available to the public to facilitate further integration and dissemination of DEIJ concepts.
