In conjunction with the release of a new resource guide, “Racial Equity Core Teams: The Engines of Institutional Change,” GARE will host a webinar featuring three presenters from local jurisdictions highlighted in the new guide.
Tuesday December 18th, 1:00PM – 2:00PM EST**
A Racial Equity Core Team is a primary leadership team responsible for designing, coordinating, and organizing racial equity plans and activities across a government jurisdiction or institution that is committed to equitable systems change. The Core Team often serves as the engine for change, leading the way, pulling others along, chugging through sometimes challenging terrain, keeping things on track, moving a diverse community of people in a common direction, and building the movement and momentum to arrive at the destination of equitable outcomes.
This webinar will include experience-based tips and lessons on starting a new Core Team, clarifying duties and expectations, coordination and communication, building community and learning, and sustaining momentum. Presenters include: Kimberlee Archie, Equity & Inclusion Manager, City of Asheville, NC; Catherine-Mercedes Judge, Manager, Race to Justice, New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene; and Matias Valenzuela, Director, Office of Equity and Social Justice, King County, WA.
