New Racial Equity Toolkit

Racial Equity Toolkit: An Opportunity to Operationalize Equity

GARE is pleased to share the our new Racial Equity Toolkit!

Racial equity tools are designed to integrate explicit consideration of racial equity in decisions, including policies, practices, programs and budgets.

Use of the racial equity tool in government can help to develop strategies and actions that reduce racial inequities and improve success for all groups.

Our racial equity toolkit:

  • Identifies clear goals, objectives and measurable outcomes.
  • Engages community in decision-making processes.
  • Identifies who will benefit or be burdened by a given decision, examines potential unintended consequences of a decision, and develops strategies to advance racial equity and mitigate unintended negative consequences.
  • Develops mechanisms for successful implementation and evaluation of impact.

If you would like training on use of the Toolkit, or development of a Racial Equity Action Plan, or are interested in joining GARE, focusing on the power and leverage of government, please email Julie Nelson or call (206) 816-5104.
