Description of Fellowship
Greer had the opportunity to work on two projects during her time as a Transformative Development Initiative (TDI) intern. The first project she completed was the development of an equity toolkit for the new Mass Housing Neighborhood Stabilization Hub. The second project was the development an inclusive leadership framework to support the ongoing work of TDI to make their partnerships more representative of the Gateway Cities the TDI districts are located in. The framework resulted the development of a final report that includes the equity tool. In addition to these projects, TDI allowed her to facilitate a lunch and learn series on racial equity and the built environment and follow-up conversation on the same topic during the annual retreat.
