Award to a Florida nonprofit organization, business, or government agency for innovative programs that address unemployment and social inequity resulting from the Coronavirus (COVID-19) health crisis. The award is intended to tackle pandemic-related job loss, with a focus on employment for people of color who have been most impacted. Eligible programs benefit the residents of Broward County.
The Community Foundation of Broward launched the Be Bold Prize, with a goal to help as many Broward County residents, especially people of color, who have been displaced from the workforce due to the Coronavirus, to gain stable employment within the next two years. The intent is to encourage new ways of thinking that move beyond traditional workforce development programs and expand the potential for transformative community impact.
The following are the Be Bold Prize objectives:
Priority will be given to solutions that approach the issue through a racial equity lens and address disparities in opportunities and access (that are caused by structural and systemic issues rooted in racism and other forms of oppression) to afford people of color impacted by the pandemic the opportunity to regain to employment.
