This workshop will support local leaders in courageously tackling the essential work of advancing racial equity in American communities. The session meets from 7:00 PM to 8:15 PM every Wednesday from May 8 to June 26.

Key takeaways from the workshop for leaders include:

  • A deeper understanding of core concepts, such as implicit/explicit bias, DEI, the levels of racism, equality vs equity, and much more. 
  • New insights on the nation’s history with race and the role of government in advancing/blocking racial equity.
  • The latest frameworks for spurring government and community action on racial equity.
  • Model policies, practices, procedures, and leadership behaviors that can help advance racial equity.

The workshop is designed to ensure that participants are energized, inspired, and ready to exercise a leadership role in racial equity in their communities. It includes engaging presentations and group discussions, plus interactive exercises with peers, office hours, and one-to-one assistance with instructors. Participating leaders will also form a Community of Practice to learn and test proven strategies for making racial equity a cross-cutting priority for their communities and local government.
