Michael Bobbitt, Executive Director of Mass Cultural Council, will present the Agency's Racial Equity Plan. The Plan is for both internal (within the Agency) and external (grantmaking) use. While Mass Cultural Council funds in the arts and cultural space, the Racial Equity Plan is a blueprint and relevant to all grantmaking.
Michael will walk us through the process of how the Agency arrived at the draft, point out some of the difficult conversations that took place along the way, and share why the plan is a necessity. There will be lots of opportunity for Q & A.
