Race Forward runs a deep-dive training, Building Racial Equity, for those who wish to sharpen their skills and strategies to address systemic racism and advance racial equity. We have partnered with Race Forward in order to offer a PNY Members only workshop, so that you are able to learn in a peer setting.

As the philanthropic sector works to tackle inequality, it is important that we build a shared understanding and a set of tools to speak openly about racial bias and inequity, and their deep roots in our history, culture, and institutions.

In this virtual two half-day workshop, participants will be introduced to concepts, frames, and tools that are essential to a productive racial equity practice. 

What will you learn?

Upon completing these workshops, you will be better able to:

  • Build a clear understanding of key concepts such as racial equity and structural racism
  • Learn to talk about race constructively within your organizations and with your constituents
  • Gain tools and practices for counteracting racial bias in your work and practices
  • Identify opportunities and next steps for applying concepts and strategies to advance racial equity

Designed For

This program is open to Philanthropy New York members only, in both operational and grantmaking roles in their organizations. We encourage cross-departmental teams to attend and work as pairs during this process. It is a critical introductory training for those seeking grounding, core concepts, and frameworks essential to a productive racial equity practice
