School’s Out Washington’s annual Bridge Conference is a multi-day regional convening focused on exploring, celebrating, and influencing our collective field(s) through the act of solidarity and unified learning.

Facilitating Equity-Centered, Collaborative and Authentic Grant Proposal Design Processes

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Grant writers and program evaluators can help translate a vision into a practical plan. This requires an equity-centered approach weaving together strong research, collaboration and storytelling skills. Join us to explore cases of successful proposal development supporting expanded learning and educational programs. We will:

• Practice using racial equity tools for program, budget and grant development;

• Discuss guidelines to ensure strong collaboration between internal and external partners; and

• Share planning templates that facilitate a strong design process and a smooth hand-off to implement the program after funding.

The workshop’s intended audiences are intermediate and seasoned grant writers and youth program leaders who play roles facilitating teams in proposal development.
