Race Forward is offering Governing for Racial Equity training (Advancing Racial Equity) in an open to the public format. Discounted registration is available to practitioners from GARE member jurisdictions.
This workshop provides an introduction to the role, responsibilities and opportunities for government to advance racial equity. We focus on normalizing racial equity as a core value with clear definitions of key terminology, operationalizing racial equity via new policies and institutional practice, and organizing, both internally and in partnership with other institutions and the community.
Participants gain awareness of the history of race and of implicit and explicit bias and individual, institutional, and structural racism and how it impacts the workplace; gain skill at identifying and addressing institutional and structural racism; and increase capacity to advance racial equity.
We introduce a racial equity tool that can be used in decisions relating to policies, practices, programs and budget and share effective communications strategies. This workshop includes facilitated discussion, exercises and video
