Advancing equity increases the prosperity, health, and safety of the entire community. In order to transform structures, organizations, communities, and systems, community leaders and residents need an equity lens focusing on the unique experiences of marginalized identities including People of Color, LGBTQ+, and Immigrants. This highly interactive training provides:
- A comprehensive framework and definitions of racial equity, diversity, inclusion (REDI)
- An overview of the value of REDI, community engagement, and why representation is important
- Practical strategies for advancing REDI through inclusive town events, community dialogue, resident feedback, and town responsiveness.
Workshop leaders offer a variety of tools and teaching methods including graphic facilitation, visual imagery, theoretical models, small group dialogue, and kinesthetic interaction, to create a dynamic space that supports all types of learners.
