Community Events
Racial Equity Nonprofit Leader Cohort

This is the culmination of your ideas, engagement, and desire to work together in leveling up our commitment to racial equity in our organizations. 

This cohort will be associated and aligned with the Economic Inclusion Network through Grow Cedar Valley. At this time we will operate as a cohort specifically focused on racial equity work within our nonprofit and community-serving organizations. 

You are invited to attend our inaugural meeting on Wednesday, June 16th from 2:00-4:00pm.

At this time our focus is on involving top-level leaders of nonprofits and community-serving organizations. Our hope is that their engagement will ensure the racial equity work is valued and pursued within their organization. We do envision a future in which we more broadly engage staff at all levels, but at this stage we are looking for organizational leaders and board chairs primarily. 

Please RSVP here.
