The webinar is built on research in our Awake to Woke to Work: Building a Race Equity Culture publication, which includes key learnings on how to operationalize equity, and build a Race Equity Culture within organizations. Webinar participants will learn about the Race Equity Cycle framework, as well as the management levers organizations utilize to measurably shift organizational culture toward race equity.
Equity in the Center’s research is designed to support leaders as they build and expand their organization’s capacity to advance race equity. During the webinar, we will outline the need for building a Race Equity Culture in social sector organizations, and introduce resources and strategies to help participants move from commitment to action.
The Race Equity Cycle identifies the three stages and common entry points of building a Race Equity Culture; helps organizations find themselves in this work; and names the levers that create momentum in building a Race Equity Culture. Our research also illustrate how those levers can work by outlining practices from peer organizations and suggesting actions participants can take to get started.
Participants will be introduced to research and resources Equity in the Center provides to support leaders and organizations in advancing race equity.
Participants will understand key research findings from the Awake to Woke to Work: Building a Race Equity Culture publication, and how to apply the Race Equity Cycle framework in their own work.
Participants will learn about management and operational levers that can shift organizational culture toward race equity.
