AOR Call for Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Proposals & Sponsorships

2 Mar 2022

Call for DEI Proposals

AOR's Board of Directors has identified diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) as a priority work area for 2022 and beyond. The AOR Board recently voted to focus short-term efforts on re-launching a DEI Committee and empowering that group to identify possible next steps for the organization, such as a near-term work plan.
The Board acknowledges several barriers to achieving these outcomes, including a lack of DEI expertise and lived experience on the Board. In order to convene a diverse committee and support an inclusive process, we would like to work with a contractor who possesses professional and personal expertise related to DEI issues, emerging topics and recommended practices. 
AOR is seeking proposals for projects that will support a few key activities and deliverables over the next 10-12 months from when a contract is signed. It is AOR’s intention that this foundational project is the first phase of multiple phases and projects.  
If you are interested, please review the full call for proposals at this link and submit your proposal to by March 31, 2022. Please help us spread the word about this opportunity! For questions or to request additional information, please contact with "AOR DEI proposal" in the subject line

DEI Sponsorship Opportunities

In order to make meaningful progress toward making AOR a more inclusive and equitable organization -- in our programs, policies and internal operations -- we need to dedicate real resources to these important efforts. We are pleased to be able to allocate $10,000 of our existing budget to kick off this work in 2022. Now we need your support to raise an additional $5,000 to meet our budget goal!
