Across the North Coast region, we have many shared values and aspirations for equity and justice. And yet, what we see in our communities are stark differences in experience based upon one’s race, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, disability, and/or social or economic status. To practically improve equity, we must adopt it as a core value that is put into action. This means increasing individual understanding and also changing the institutional policies and practices that have created and maintained inequities. 

Julie Nelson, Dwayne Marsh, and Brenda Anibarro (pictured right) will share their extensive experience about the importance of normalizing racial equity as a key value and developing clear understanding  of explicit and implicit bias, structural and institutional racism, equity and equality, and shared their definitions.

In addition, Nelson, Marsh and Anibarro will introduce methods of operationalizing equity -- through new policies and by transforming the underlying culture of our organizations -- and organizing for equity -- both within our organizations and in partnership with other institutions and the community. 
Julie Nelson , Senior Vice President at the Center for Social Inclusion and Haas Institute for a Fair & Inclusive Society
