Advancing Equity Through Organizational Culture and Operations | 2024 Foundation of Racial Equity: Session 4

About Session 4

In this fourth session of the Foundations of Racial Equity Series, we will deepen our understanding and awareness of how our identities impact our work. We will practice discussing experiences of identity, which is out of pattern for most workplaces. In the two modules of this session, participants will engage in conversation and activities to link their identity to their experience of culture and operations within their organizations.

We will cover topics like organizational culture, human resources, vendors, operating capital, investments, and partnerships. As we often think of program folks as those who lead in equity work, we’ll zoom in on the organizational approach to equity, reminding ourselves that everyone in an organization has a role in advancing equity.

Our time together will close with a reflection on possible implications for future work and development given your specific organizational goals.

Join us to:

  • Deepen identity self-reflection, and explore the nature of identity and its construction.
  • Link patterns of thinking and behavior to cultural and operational practices at work.
  • Explore how dominant and non-dominant identities influence organizational culture and operations.
  • Practice sharing our own stories of identity and how they inform our experiences, approaches, and decisions with our colleagues as well as those we seek to serve.
