Presenter:

Carol Cheney, Diversity and Equity and Inclusion Manager, Meyer Memorial Trust

Description:
Between 2016 – 2019, Meyer provided grants to organizations to increase their internal capacity for diversity, equity and inclusion work. These grants were grounded in Meyer’s belief that when organizations are more inclusive, diverse and equitable internally, their outcomes will improve for all populations, especially historically marginalized groups. After four full years of grantmaking, we evaluated the DEI TA Fund impact and process and have learned much about DEI capacity building from the grantees themselves. In this session, we’ll share the wisdom gained by grantees, some common challenges and how Meyer is acting upon what we have learned.
