This four-part webinar series, led by Race Matters Institute, will cover a range of tools for understanding the history of racial inequity in homelessness, conducting a racial equity impact analysis, and developing strategies to advance racial equity in your organization. The first two webinars in this series have already taken place, but you can participate in the final two webinars at a discounted rate.
Participants will move through the webinar series together and will complete pre-work before each webinar. If you might be interested in participating in Foundations for Racial Equity, our two-year community of practice on racial equity and homelessness, this webinar series will give you a taste of the type of learning the community will more deeply explore.
There is a participation fee for this webinar series:
- $60 for Funders Together Full Members
- $80 for Funder Together Basic Members and Non-Members
By signing up for the second half of this series, participants must also participate in a call with Stephanie Chan which will cover the content of the first two webinars in this series.
The final two webinars in the series will take place on and cover the following:
Decision-making Matters: A Deeper Application of the Racial Equity Impact Analysis Tool
January 24, 2019 | 1:00-2:30 pm EST
This tool from the Race Matters Toolkit consists of five questions that can be asked regarding any policy, practice, protocol, strategy, or decision, either existing or proposed. The intent of the tool is to test ideas to determine if there is a disparate impact by race. In this 90-minute session, participants dig deeper into the functionality of the tool and experience its capability to generate new solutions. The tool can be used immediately, with tasks residing on your desk no matter what kind of work you do.
Get Your House in Order: Strategies to Advance Racial Equity Inside Your Organization

This webinar will dig deeper into organizational practices that advance racial equity inside organizations. Participants in the 90-minute session are encouraged to analyze the internal structures and processes within their respective organizations. Whether you work in an organization that is white-led, in an organization led by people of color, or in community across racial groups, there are many nuanced leadership issues that can emerge depending one’s localized racial and political context.
Please note: This webinar is only open to members of Funders Together, private funders, United Ways, and philanthropy-serving organizations.
