Advancing Racial Equity Workshop

May 11, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm UTC-4


The 5th Annual Placemaking Residency will take place May 9-12, 2016 and explore the intersection of equity and design. Over the next five years, billions of dollars will be spent on development in the region’s built environment. How do we address the increasing economic and social disparity in our cities and how can design contribute to greater equity and opportunity for everyone? Join us as we explore the intersection of equity and design – a timely and crucial community conversation.

Advancing Racial Equity Workshop featuring the Government Alliance on Race and Equity

This workshop is on Wednesday, May 11 and will explore the role, challenges, responsibilities and opportunities for government to advance racial equity in the Twin Cities. The workshop will also include an overview of shared terminology and use of racial equity tools that can be used in decisions relating to policies, practices, programs and budget. Well focus on national best practices. We know government must transform if we are to achieve racial equity in our communities. Within our cities and counties, we must normalize racial equity as a key value, operationalize racial equity via new policies and institutional practice, and organize, both internally and in partnership with other institutions and the community.

Moderated by Glenn Harris, President, Center for Social Inclusion, and Julie Nelson, Director, Government Alliance on Race and Equity and Senior Vice-President, Center for Social Inclusion.
