This will be the fourth year of Prosper Portland’s Inspiring Diversity Grant. Portland Green Cities companies such as Green Hammer, Ride Report, and Bora have been recipients.
"The Prosper Portland grant allows Green Hammer the opportunity to put equity and inclusion at the forefront of our company training priorities and delve into our implicit biases and internalized “isms” (racism, sexism, etc.). Through upcoming trainings, we expect to increase our focus on equity and create next steps for a more inclusive workplace."
- Beth Campbell, Green Hammer: (2019 Grant Recipient)
“Ride Report is excited to leverage Prosper Portland’s Inspiring Diversity grant to help our local community use alternate forms of transportation provided by the scooter fleets being deployed in Portland. Our program creates an integral, but currently absent bridge, between the underserved and marginalized populations of Portland, and effective education, empowerment, and access to micromobility transportation. Having this new resource will have a huge impact on how we develop our product to be mindful of the perspectives of the city residents we serve.“
