Bora Awarded Pilot Grant to Support Business Diversity + Inclusion

by Bora Architects

Bora is actively engaged in increasing awareness about equity and bias in our profession and our practice. But when it comes to identifying and addressing implicit biases, an experienced facilitator is essential. 

That’s why we’re grateful to Prosper Portland for awarding us one of their first Inspiring Diversity Grants! This will support the launch of our Equity and Implicit Bias training program, giving us the opportunity to critically explore our own practice, learning to identify and reduce barriers that impact our staff, partners, and the diverse communities we serve.

Prosper Portland has provided a catalyst for change by staging this discussion at a city-wide level, and we are eager to share this experience and lessons learned with our neighbors and peers in the local business community.

Congratulations to our fellow awardees, Bridge & Burn, Castelli Cycling, KEEN, Treehouse, Ride Report, Green Hammer Design Build, ThinkShout, and Advanced Technology Communications! We look forward to pushing ourselves, and we’ll be sharing updates as we move ahead.
