Advancing Racial Equity and Transforming Government was a learning session to learn about tackling advancing governments role in advancing racial equity. This is such an important topic and we received such positive feedback!
Attendees Learned About:
- Government Alliance on Race & Equity's approach of normalizing racial equity as a key value, operationalizing racial equity via new policies and institutional practice, and organizing - both internally and in partnership with other institutions and the community.
- Heard examples of successful implementation of models that advance racial equity and transform government. Having elected leaders who prioritize racial equity is critical, but an equally pressing question is the role of front line staff and managers who work across the breadth (all functions) and depth (not just people in positions of power, but all staff across departments).
- Strategizes about immediate practical ways funders can engage with government, including innovative funding strategies targeted at eliminating structural racism, and opportunities to work in partnerships with government and the community at the regional level.
