Report Worth Reading: How-to for Institutions Beginning their Race Equity Journey

Equity in the Center | National |

"Race is a social construct that has deep societal impact. Our nation’s history of racism has been codified through systems such as slavery, education, and housing — all issues that the social sector seeks to address. As such, the social sector has a mandate to eliminate racism at all levels on which it exists and shift its axis towards race equity." This statement sets the tone and context for a report by Equity in the Center, which tackles how organizations can begin the race equity journey in their respective institutions.

The authors of Awake to Woke to Work: Building a Race Equity Culture have identified seven strategic elements of an organization that, when leveraged, can build momentum towards a culture of racial equity at an institutional scale, including: senior leadership, management, board of directors, community (or the populations served by the organization), learning environment (or investment in staff capacity), data, and organizational culture.
