Over the past year, Covid-19, the murder of George Floyd, and the Black Lives Matter protests compelled awareness of institutional racial disparities in this country. Nonprofits have committed to Justice, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (JDEI) work.

However, with the goal of racial justice, organizations need to move beyond JDEI work toward solutions that address institutional and structural racism. This webinar covers the following:

  • Understanding Structural Racism. How do we analyze problems holistically to identify root causes?
  • Challenging Structural Racism. What questions should we ask to strategically address structural racism?
  • Developing Solutions. How can nonprofits advance viable solutions?

Join us as we discuss shifting the focus towards institutional and structural racism to come up with long-lasting racially equitable solutions in our organizations.
