Writing an Effective Grant Proposal

September 24, 2015   Writing an effective grant proposal is very much like creating an effective brochure to sell your product or services, or writing a good business proposal. You need to write persuasively and to present your case in a clearly written, logical way. A good grant proposal presents your organization or your individual work in the best possible light, and convinces the potential funder that your goals are aligned with their own mission statement and vision. It makes them want to support your work by awarding you a grant.

Making Inclusion Real: Implementing Cultural Competency in your Organization

October 8, 2015   Do you want to build your organization’s capacity to welcome and honour people?  Do you want to work from an anti-oppressive or cultural competency framework, but are unsure how?  This workshop will examine the importance of creating organizational structures that support cultural competency and review tools that put policy into practice. Participants will explore what it means to build and review policy with an anti-oppression lens and review day to day practice that can enhance your organization’s cultural competence to build increasingly respectful and inclusive environments.

Participatory Management: Increasing Staff Involvement in Decision-Making
