EQUITY COUNCIL // LUNCHTIME SERIES Belonging: Understanding Racial Identity

IIDA NY Equity Council Lunchtime Series, in partnership with Racial Equity Partners (REP)

Belonging: Understanding Racial Identity

Issues of race and ethnicity are complicated, especially in America. Used to grant privileges to some while denying rights to others, the concept of race was socially constructed. Join us for a historical analysis of race and the legacy of its impact on American identity.

As organizations work to advance racial equity and develop inclusive work environments, we know this work is deeply personal.  This series will examine race and culture in America and the different ways people experience bias, preventing us from bringing our full self into most spaces. Share and hear about personal stories and learn about efforts being made to transform traditionally white spaces into culturally competent environments.

These bi-monthly lunchtime sessions will lead with a short presentation, leaving ample time for open conversation, interaction and questions. All sessions are free and open to the public.

Presenters:

Kavita Singh Gilchrist, Racial Equity Partners

Jeff Olivet, Racial Equity Partners
