Advancing Equity Conversation
United Way invites you to continue the conversation to reflect, share, connect and take action to advance racial equity.
Have you participated in an Equity Challenge and want to keep the momentum going? Do you want to explore how you can shift yourself, your workplace, and your relationships to advance equity? Then bring your lunch and join us for a community conversation, hosted by United Way of Washtenaw County in partnership with ChangeWorksLLC.
This is the 2nd of four (4) quarterly themed conversations we will be hosting between now and June of 2022.
This conversation will be focused on the whitewashing of history to more deeply explore the contrasts between the stories we tell about our nation and communities, and what we live out. Through the conversion, we hope you will:
Explore more deeply how racial justice concerns affect your life.
Deepen your understanding of the impacts of structural racism on others.
Identify the structural racism dynamics that generate these lived experiences.
Identify steps you can take, alone or with others, to promote racial justice.
We'll be kicking off with a panel discussion and then moving into facilitated breakout groups.
We believe in the power of this collective reflection resulting in action. During our time together, we will work to meaningfully expand and build on the power of connectedness through storytelling-- your story and our story as a community, because justice is at the heart of equity work, and it is the work of many hands.
