It builds on the foundational overview of institutional and structural racism in the nonprofit sector presented in “Race, Power, and Social Impact Within Nonprofit Organizations ” our "101" workshop.
Target Audience: This workshop is designed for individuals who are committed to undoing all forms of racism, with a focus on institutional and structural racism within the nonprofit sector. For those who have taken “Race, Power, and Social Impact Within Nonprofit Organizations,” this class aims to build on that content and equip participants with deeper analysis and strategies for undoing institutional and structural racism.
Admission Requirements: While this workshop is designed for individuals who have taken “Race, Power, and Social Impact Within Nonprofit Organizations,” it is open to leaders in the nonprofit, education, and government sectors who have a solid understanding of institutional and structural racism, white privilege, nonprofit organizations, and DEI concepts in general.
