As we dig in deeper to our racial equity work in our region, we want to share learning opportunities from around the country. Please see this one below:
|Racial Equity: From Agency-wide Initiatives to Social Service Delivery Programs|
Presented by: Dr. Kathleen Yang-Clayton, Clinical Assistant Professor of Public Administration, University of Illinois
Thursday, July 16 at 1 pm EST
Join us for an upcoming discussion on racial equity in local government.
Racial Equity: From Agency-wide Initiatives to Social Service Delivery Programs will cover how one can implement and expand racial equity policies and practices, include racial equity in decision-making, team-building and leadership development, and cover technical models such as racial equity impact analysis tools to improve the impact of policies and services for the communities we must serve.
By starting from the internal environment of the state and building a learning culture based on racial equity approaches, we seek to strengthen government so it can respond comprehensively and collaboratively to the new American public of the 21st century.
