Building and Evaluating Programs Through a Racial Equity Lens

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In this session, participants will gain insight and shared language on what it means to build and evaluate programming using a racial equity lens. We will explore a model for leading with race and examine some of the innovative ways city and county governments and nonprofits are advancing equity. Participants will also hear from those in the welcoming field who are utilizing a racial equity lens to advance their work, and will explore how a racial equity focus can support their own local welcoming work and lead to systems change back home.
