“Change in the sector can only happen when nonprofit groups identify the concrete, structural factors that reproduce racial leadership disparities, and undertake new and transformative steps to fundamentally include and expand the voices and experiences of people of color.” — Race to Lead Revised Summary

Join ERACCE and ONEplace for an introductory virtual workshop designed for nonprofit boards of directors. The primary outcome of this participatory experience is to build an understanding of and develop common language around anti-racism specifically in the context of board work. Exploring questions like: What are key concepts and shared understandings that are vital to this work? How can our board be more equitable? How can our board and organization take accountability and action?

Anyone in the greater Kalamazoo community is welcome to attend, however this opportunity is specifically curated for individuals serving on nonprofit boards or work for nonprofit organizations. To be truly effective participants must be fully open to the experience.

Presented by ERACCE staff.

ONEplace will email participants the zoom link prior to the event. Contact [email protected] if you have any questions.

Because this workshop is an interactive experience, we must limit the number of participants. Our anti-racism and equity workshops typically reach capacity and have a waitlist. While we hope you can make it, please let us know if your plans change so another person can join us.

Registration for this event is closed.
