Session 1: Awake to Woke to Work: Building a Race Equity Culture
In this session, we will engage and support social sector leaders in bold conversation on the tactics and tools that will drive action to combat structural racism within an organization’s culture. Participants will have facilitated conversation on the role that leaders play, as well as management and operational best practices, that can drive progress on race equity given both the individual and organization’s continued work on issues of diversity, inclusion and equity. New research from Equity in the Center will be shared in an interactive forum that promotes learning and empowers participants to move from intention to action as they address the adaptive challenge of building a Race Equity Culture within their given organization and context.
