Webinar: Awake to Woke to Work: Building a Race Equity Culture

Posted by Philadelphia Social Innovations Journal on December 11, 2018

Happening Wednesday December 12th, 2PM EST

This webinar will review Equity in the Center’s Race Equity Cycle framework, share critical learnings from its “Awake to Woke to Work: Building a Race Equity Culture” publication and provide insight on tactics to support organizations in moving through the Race Equity Cycle.

The Race Equity Cycle identifies the three stages and common entry points of building a Race Equity Culture; helps organizations find themselves in this work; and names the levers that create momentum in building a Race Equity Culture. Participants will be provided key learnings on how to operationalize equity and measurably shift organizational culture toward race equity.

1) Participants will be introduced to research and resources Equity in the Center provides to support leaders and organizations in advancing race equity.

2) Participants will understand key research findings from the “Awake to Woke to Work: Building a Race Equity Culture” publication, and how to apply the Race Equity Cycle framework in their own work.

3) Participants will learn about management and operational levers that can shift organizational culture toward race equity.
