About CRIW Ignite! Special Funding for Literature Reviews

CRIW Ignite! Special Funding for Literature Reviews was a supplement to CRIW Ignite! Research Grant. The aim of this special funding opportunity was to support research that synthesized knowledge related to equity, diversity and inclusion at work. In the Fall of 2021, CRIW made CAD $50,000 available to fund up to five (5) relevant literature reviews (maximum value per review $10,000).
