The Southeastern Connecticut Cultural Coalition and the Community Foundation of Eastern Connecticut Announce a regional call to action for nonprofit leaders and board members:
Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Anti-Racism Series: Undoing Structural Racism
Led by the Cultural Coalition, this is a series of events, trainings and conversations with and for professionals and community leaders engaged in the work of redesigning policies and operations from a diverse, equitable, inclusive and anti-racist lens. The series’ goal is to increase representation, access, and opportunities for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) community members in our region - among leadership, boards, staff, volunteers and audiences served - through educational activities, collaboration, and networking activities.
- Understand what structural racism looks like in an organization and how it is manifested.
- Learn the importance of acknowledgement, commitment and transformation along the journey to racial equity.
- Receive practical tips, tools and advice for implementing a measurable and sustainable strategy to guide your organization.
Thought Partner Solutions (TPS) is a Black-owned management consulting firm that provides advisory services to organizations to dismantle institutional racism. Their “RE-ACT for Change”TM framework moves organizations from ideas to action - from vision to transformation, through solutions that achieve measurable outcomes and sustainable change. This customized, interactive workshop will be facilitated by TPS Founder and CEO, Jamal Jimerson.
