Systematization of Racial Equity, Policy Development, & Implementation
There is a growing recognition of the importance of racial equity in our social consciousness. Many agencies and organizations are beginning to situate racial equity as a central goal for strategic objectives and programming. In this workshop, we will support you in developing a thorough analysis of what equity is and how to prioritize it in a consistent, coherent, and systemic manner.
You will discover how adopting racial equity as a guiding organizational principle requires creating and implementing a comprehensive racial equity policy, as well as practices and procedures that highlight your organization’s specific areas of growth and the ways in which you remain accountable. Come to this workshop ready to roll up your sleeves, get messy, and start creating genuine systemic change.

Enhance their understanding of systemic racial equity
