Common Good Vermont is partnering with the North Carolina Center for Nonprofits for this 2-part webinar:
What’s White Got To Do With It? Disrupting Race-Based Inequities in Well-Intentioned Nonprofits.
May 22, 12-1:30 pm
Part 1: Key moments in United States history have established whiteness as the default, the norm, the supreme culture. This webinar will explore the socio-political and historical contexts of whiteness and how the white dominant culture by which most nonprofits operate was constructed and has been upheld through policy, legal decisions, and Eurocentric cultural values. Participants will have a chance to explore their own roles as gatekeepers within their organizations and how they can disrupt race-based inequity by leveraging their own individual and collective power. Register.
June 5, 12-1:30 pm
Part 2: Take a deeper dive into the extent that white dominant cultural tendencies have been internalized and operationalized within our nonprofits and the role that gatekeepers have in perpetuating or disrupting non-inclusive practices and policies. We’ll explore tactics that unite your staff and board in prioritizing equity and looking at the organization’s work and culture through a racial equity lens. Register.
Register for each webinar separately.
This webinar is part of the Center’s initiative, Walking the Talk: Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion in North Carolina Nonprofits, to address racial and generational leadership gaps in the nonprofit sector and the policies, practices, and culture that exacerbate them.
