Limited space remaining for our Oct 1 workshop in Boston!

Register now for the “Advancing Racial Equity: the Role of Government” workshop in Boston on October 1

The “Advancing Racial Equity: the Role of Government” workshop will provide an introduction to the role, responsibilities and opportunities for government to advance racial equity.

We’ll focus on national best practices. We know government must transform if we are to achieve racial equity in our communities. Within our cities and counties, we must normalize racial equity as a key value, operationalize racial equity via new policies and institutional practice, and organize, both internally and in partnership with other institutions and the community.

The workshop will include an overview of shared terminology and use of racial equity tools that can be used in decisions relating to policies, practices, programs and budget.

The workshop will be led by:

If you work for government or with government, this is the workshop for you.

Registration fee is $100 (includes light breakfast and lunch), and scholarships are available.
