Working Towards Racial Equity

05/07/2020 09:00 AM - 04:00 PM CST

Description

Working towards racial equity requires us to understand how racism operates on multiple levels (internal, institutional, and structural): examine how inequities manifest in our programs, policies, and practices; and recognize how these inequities disproportionately impact communities of color. Through this interactive training, you will develop strategies and identify opportunities to strengthen racial equity practices for yourself and your organization.

After attending this training, you will be able to:

  • Build a clear understanding of key concepts such as racial equity, implicit bias, and the levels of racism
  • Lead critical conversations about embedded racial inequities that affect job seekers of color
  • Gain tools  and resources for counteracting racial bias in your work and practices
  • Assess your organization's racial equity practices and identify areas for growth
