Advancing Racial Equity
August 26, 01:00 PM – 03:00 PM
Racial equity efforts are gaining momentum across many aspects of society, including in corporate, governmental, nonprofit, educational, and faith community settings. Undertaking substantive and effective change around institutional and personal racism requires an understanding of the history and context of race in the U. S. This workshop provides the history and context necessary for recognizing white privilege, challenging racism, and advancing racial equity.
This workshop is ideal for any individual working to challenge inequity and racism. Individuals with more background on these topics will gain new ways of talking about race and racism, as a means to support changes in your community. Individuals newer to these topics will walk away with a greater sense of the national and local history of race and racism, as a context for understanding your place in the conversation. Whether your nonprofit works in areas of housing, education, health, the arts, or the environment – understanding the history of race and privilege helps us understand how to work better today.
