Intertwine Alliance Updates
As most of you know, The Intertwine Alliance made an organizational assessment cohort, antiracism training, and other organizational equity and deconstructing bias programming available to our partners last year, mostly through funding provided by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service. Our intention has been to bring our partners together on these issues so they can learn from each other and gain some economies of scale in accessing training and support. Participants reported to us that these programs were effective, and encouraged us to continue this type of work.
