All In – Foundational Learning

Thursday, December 5, from 1pm to 2pm ET (please adjust for your time zone!)

What does a pervasive culture of equity look like? This session is an entry point to organizational equity work, looking at the basic principles of equity-seeking and how to understand your organization’s position within your communities. We’ll differentiate between equity, diversity, and inclusion, and work towards shared vocabulary around anti-oppression.

No cost to participate – open to PACT Members and Colleagues only. Group sizes are kept small to ensure maximum participation and engagement.
