Zoom Info Provided Upon Registration

Restore America’s Estuaries, with the help of the National Science Foundation, aims to improve diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice (DEIJ) in grantmaking, project design, and implementation in the coastal sector through The Inclusive Coasts Initiative. This initiative provides opportunities for grantmakers, project implementers, educators, and members of the coastal community to engage in two series of workshops: one geared towards grant-makers and a second geared towards project implementors. 


We are excited to open registration for the final segment of our grant-makers series. This interactive workshop will focus on Outreach, Partnerships, and Centering Communities Through Program Design. Please note that the workshop will be capped at 50 attendees to ensure robust dialogue and will not be recorded to allow for greater freedom of discussion. 



  • Introductions
  • Solutions to Common Barriers (e.g. updating program design, rethinking deliverables, conducting outreach, providing support)
  • Q&A with Speakers 
  • Liberating Structures:15% Solutions 
  • Wrap Up, Questions, & Next Steps 

If this is your first Inclusive Coasts Initiative workshop, the grant-making series launched on Thursday, February 24, 2022. The initial webinar included a presentation on inclusive practices in grant-making followed by a discussion on barriers to access and the needs of diverse organizations. If you missed the webinar, you can watch the recording. On March 31 we continued the series with an interactive Workshop on how funders could be more equitable and inclusive in their grant application process, and how they could reach a more diverse pool of applicants. Please note that the second workshop was not recorded to protect the confidentiality of participants.
