Webinar – Taking it Personally: The What, Why, and How of Racial Equity
About the Webinar
Racial equity is a term that permeates nonprofit spaces. At times conflated with diversity, inclusion, and/or equality, racial equity is distinctive. It taps into the leadership of marginalized and underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, amplifies their voices in decision-making, and clears pathways for greater ownership stakes in systems change processes.
Among nonprofit leaders, there is a high emphasis on defining racial equity and developing strategy to exhibit one’s organizational commitment. However, knowing why you are leading with racial equity is the anchoring point that will determine the durability of your commitment over time.
