Congratulations to the Inspiring Diversity Grant Recipients
We are excited to announce that several of our partner companies have received the Inspiring Diversity grant from Prosper Portland to support their work around diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). The grants encourage companies to incorporate creative, equity-related best practices around workforce, marketing and communications. Prosper Portland contributes to shaping a more equitable city and diverse workforce through grant initiatives like this one.
Kudos to our partners who will be using the Inspiring Diversity grant on DEI initiatives – Keep up the good work!
