CGP is proud to announce a new initiative to support our members who represent diverse communities through a scholarship program to attend the 2020 CGP Virtual Conference. The scholarship includes registration to attend the full conference and a one-year national membership. Members and council member prospects representing Black, LatinX, Asian/Pacific Islander, Indigenous, two or more races, LGBTQI, and differently abled communities are invited to participate.
“The CGP Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Task Force has developed several recommendations to improve our efforts to recruit, support and advance members from diverse communities. This initiative capitalizes on the unique circumstances of the 2020 CGP Conference to invite members of these communities to increase their skills and build their professional network.” – Marion Yongue, CGP Board of Directors and Chair, CGP Task Force on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
CGP is reaching out to our network of councils asking you to help communicate the initiative to your membership and encourage individuals to participate in this open program. An application is required and can be found here. Applications will be accepted through September 25th. You may contact email@example.com with any questions. Please take advantage of this opportunity to support our diverse communities and help us to build a stronger and more inclusive professional community.
