It seems every day we are faced with a new instance of a racially inequitable event, and their consequences. You may wonder…..What should I be doing on a day-to-day basis, as a nonprofit professional? This session will start with providing definitions and a general understanding of what racial equity is, and then discuss steps each professional, at any level, can take to move towards the ideal – when no one is treated differently or has different opportunities for achievement based on their race or ethnicity.
