Institutional Equity: Shift your outcomes by shifting your systems

When you look at the outcomes of your work, are you advancing racial equity? Or are you replicating systems of racial injustice, despite your best intentions? In this workshop, we start by reviewing the difference between equity and equality. Then we introduce you to our sun model, which illustrates how your agency’s values and practices lead directly to the outcomes you are seeing. This may include external outcomes (your impact on program participants and community), your internal outcomes (within the workplace of staff and volunteers), or both. You will have a chance to apply a simple equity analysis to a key organizational issue and brainstorm actions you could take to shift toward racial equity in your outcomes.
