Advancing Racial Equity: The Role of Government

Hosted and facilitated by the Government Alliance on Race and Equity (GARE)

Pre-requisite Trainings: None

Registration: Open to General Public

This workshop provides an introduction to the role, responsibilities and opportunities for government to advance racial equity. The training will focus on normalizing racial equity as a core value with clear definitions of key terminology, operationalizing racial equity via new policies and institutional practice, and organizing, both internally and in partnership with other institutions and the community. Participants will gain awareness of the history of race and of implicit and explicit bias and individual, institutional, and structural racism and how it impacts the workplace; gain skills at identifying and addressing institutional and structural racism; and increase capacity to advance racial equity. We introduce a racial equity tool that can be used in decisions relating to policies, practices, programs and budget and share effective communications strategies. This workshop is for new and emerging GARE Members who have not yet participated in GARE’s Signature training “Advancing Racial Equity: The Role of Government,” or for staff seeking a refresher on key terms, concepts, and strategies.
