Race Equity in Nonprofit Communications and Storytelling is a full-day workshop for nonprofit leaders seeking to develop communication strategies through a lens of race equity. Through small discussion groups, interactive presentations, and communications mapping, participants will begin to learn how to integrate the principles of race equity into their storytelling and communications. How do we design shared frameworks for building and repairing trust in the communities we work with? How do we begin to understand dynamics of power? How do we integrate the principles of equity and inclusion into the ways we think about communications? In this full-day workshop, you’ll get the answers to those questions and more.
- develop an understanding of concepts related to dynamics of power at the intersection of race, storytelling, and communications
- gain access to tools and best practices for challenging racial bias in our communications
- learn how to talk about structural racism and repair with colleagues, funders, and constituents
- identify key strategies for championing equity and inclusion efforts through storytelling
- engage in small group discussions in a brave and welcoming space
Cost: $50 per person (including lunch)
Open to all nonprofit staff, board members, and volunteers. Organizations are welcome to register up to five participants; if you’re interested in adding more, please email email@example.com and request that they be added to the waiting list.
