Event description
Racial Equity training designed to equip participants with shared language, analysis and tools to advance racial justice.

About this event

In a moment unlike any we have faced as a global community, Race Forward believes that Racial Justice is more important than ever. In order to embed Racial Equity into all of our day to day operations as well as our responses in this moment we must continue to hold fast to a commitment that enables us to learn, grow and practice racial equity work together.

As the world continues to adapt to the pandemic, we will continue to offer virtual learning spaces that center on normalizing, organizing and operationalizing racial equity into our work at every intersection.

The Virtual Building Racial Equity series, developed by Race Forward: The Center for Racial Justice Innovation, are interactive trainings for those who wish to sharpen their skills and strategies to address systemic racism and advance racial equity. Unlike “diversity trainings” which primarily focus on interpersonal relations and understanding, these trainings emphasize how to challenge and change institutional racial inequities.

Building Racial Equity: Foundations is the first and “foundational” training of the series. Participants will build on and strengthen racial equity practices for themselves and their organizations and networks. This training will introduce participants to concepts, frames, and tools that are essential to a productive racial equity practice. Attending this training is required to participate in subsequent series trainings.

Training Components

  • Racial Justice Values & Vision
  • Key Concepts: Different Dimensions of Racism and Systems Analysis
  • Countering Implicit Bias
  • Opportunities to Advance Racial Equity

Participants will

  • Build a clear understanding of key concepts such as racial equity and structural racism.
  • Learn to talk about race constructively within their organizations and with their constituents.
  • Gain tools and practices for counteracting racial bias in their work and practices.
  • Identify opportunities and next steps for applying concepts and strategies to advance racial equity.

Organizer Race Forward: The Center for Racial Justice Innovation

Organizer of Building Racial Equity: Foundations - Virtual 4/21/22




Race Forward: The Center for Racial Justice Innovation united with Center for Social Inclusion (CSI) in 2017 to become the new Race Forward. The new Race Forward is home to the Government Alliance on Race and Equity (GARE), and also publishes Colorlines, a daily news site where race matters. The new Race Forward also presents Facing Race, the country’s largest multiracial conference on racial justice.
Founded in 1981, Race Forward brings systemic analysis and an innovative approach to complex race issues to help people take effective action toward racial equity. Founded in 2002, CSI catalyzes community, government, and other institutions to dismantle structural racial inequity and create equitable outcomes for all. As one organization, the new Race Forward is dedicated to transforming institutions and empowering the community in order to move policy, culture, and narrative for racial equity.
