Event description

Description

The Racial Justice Leadership Institute, developed by Race Forward: The Center for Racial Justice Innovation, is an interactive training for those who wish to sharpen their skills and strategies to address structural racism and advance racial equity. Unlike “diversity trainings” which primarily focus on interpersonal relations and understanding, the Institute emphasizes how to challenge and change institutional racial inequities.


This training is a closed training for selected members of the Talent and Leadership Development Pilot Program of the Kresge Foundation.


Participants at the RJLI 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.

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.
