Event description

Description

You are invited to participate in the Racial Equity and Inclusion Workshops presented by the Racial Equity Institute (REI) on Thursday, December, 13 (9am - 5pm) AND Friday, December, 14 (9am - 5pm).

Breakfast and lunch will be provided on both days.

REI works, across the country, with individuals like you to understand the factors that have led to current day inequities and helps to put us in position to break down those barriers, so that more individuals have the opportunity for success.

These workshops are equipping community members with a common understanding of historical and current data trends, a shared language, and the ability to identify policies and practices that need to be addressed.

The REI workshops are being hosted by a collaboration between the Office of Mayor Sly James, Kansas City Public Library, the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, and Kansas City Public Schools. These workshops are just one part of an emerging community conversation with many other engaged organizations.

We realize that these issues are not new and that we have had variations of this conversation before. However, there are several groups beginning to synergize so that we have a different kind of conversation than we have had in the past - one that is focused on getting better results for our entire community.

We know that you care deeply about the growth and development of a prosperous, diverse Kansas City. We hope that you will join us in this learning experience, as we work together to make a change in our beloved community.

We hope you can make it!

Cheers,

Office of Mayor Sly James, Kansas City Public Library, Kansas City Public Schools, and the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation.

*It is important that you complete the 2-Day Training, in its entirety*
