About | Racial Equity Action Institute

NCG’s Racial Equity Action Institute (REAI)  — a program connecting racial equity specialists and leaders in philanthropy, government, business, and nonprofits to learn, network and develop a mix of actionable strategies with field experts and each other to advance racial equity, diversity, and inclusion within their institutions. Each year, a 20-person cohort will be chosen to participate in REAI with opportunities to reflect, share, and act.

The Racial Equity Action Institute is a multi-sector space to test and deepen racial equity, diversity, and inclusion (REDI) practices. We center racial equity with an intersectional framework that recognizes the ways race is shaped and informed by class, gender, sexuality, and ability. Twenty participants will attend 6 in-person, six-hour sessions from August 2020 through February 2021. Whether your institution uses “racial equity” or “DEI” the Racial Equity Action Institute will focus on moving your institution towards equitable practices and supporting you in creating the conditions for action.  

One sector on its own cannot solve the challenges of racial inequities. NCG recognizes we can achieve more together by organizing a multi-sector space for discussion, learning, and innovation. Through the Racial Equity Action Institute, participants will gain knowledge, lessons, and tools for making change in their institutions on REDI and to create solutions for our shared challenges in the Bay Area.
