Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Values
- In tandem with the creation of History Colorado’s Anti-Racism Values, the State Historical Fund launched an examination of its program for diversity, equity, and inclusion in 2020.
- Changes to the program include the incorporation of a Letter of Intent to our grant application process, demographic questions for grant applicants and reviewers, and diversity, equity, and inclusion training for staff and grant reviewers.
- Though we are making efforts to respond to this movement immediately, we view this as a permanent aspect of our work and will take a long-term approach in how we identify the best ways to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in our program.
- We are hiring a consultant to provide initial guidance and put our feet firmly on the path by providing us a framework and assessing our scoring and rubrics for the coming years. Stay tuned as we reach out for feedback on our program.
