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.
