Civitates – European AI Fund Convening
Civitates and the European AI Fund convened in Brussels more than 40 grantee partners from both collaborative projects in the context of their overlapping work on digital and tech policy. Conversations revolved around the common external challenges faced by civil society organizations in the field and how to build a stronger ecosystem approach to these challenges. Participants also heard ideas for collective action from other sectors like the climate movement, insights on EU advocacy, and reflected on the infrastructure that is needed for enabling better collaboration.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at NEF
NEF embarked on a four-step process to explore how to better implement Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) principals in its grantmaking practices as well as in the workplace. In the first introductory workshop, team members across collaborative projects and NEF board members examined their own biases, and how they might be affecting their work and perpetuating a discriminatory system. The workshop facilitators shared lessons learnt and specific examples on building an inclusive organization.
Throughout the process the objective is to foster exchanges amongst NEF collaborative projects about a DEI approach and practices and ultimately come up with an individualized roadmap for each of the collaborative projects and for NEF to collectively embrace DEI in day-to-day operations.
