Race Equity and Inclusion Webinar Series

Racial disparities, discrimination, and segregation are widespread and continue to undermine our nation’s social fabric. The purpose of this webinar series is to provide organizations with the foundational knowledge needed to integrate race equity and inclusion into programs, policies, and practices. The webinars will feature speakers from the acclaimed Race Matters Institute based in Baltimore, Md., as well as from community-based groups focusing on health equity within North and South Carolina. 

These webinars will deepen knowledge of racial equity principles and concepts; cover how to become an equity-focused organization; explain the importance of disaggregated data to propose policy solutions; and explore how to collect, analyze, and effectively use disaggregated data. The series will conclude with case studies of equity-focused initiatives within the Carolinas.
