Action Steps to Building Equity and Resisting Racism

Monday, October 7, 3:00pm – 4:30pm

Regency C-2, Mezzanine Second Floor

Organized by Judi Jennings, Executive Director, The Kentucky Foundation for Women, and Justin Laing, Program Officer, Arts & Culture Program, The Heinz Endowments.

This session will engage participants in sharing resources relating to specific strategies and tactics they are employing to build equity and undermine racism in their work. Participants are asked to come prepared with brief descriptions of actual instances to share with colleagues. Examples of how you, or an organization you supported, organized members of the community to take on an issue of racism are welcomed. The session will give you the opportunity to talk and listen to colleagues and will be highly participatory. Examples and strategies discussed during the session will be compiled and distributed to participants.
