Organizational Culture, Climate, and Racial Equity Efforts

Tuesday March 26th, 12:00 - 1:00 pm @ St. Louis MHB

When organizations decide to commit to racial equity, it often sets in motion a stream of activities related to defining the organization's values and a general attentiveness to the ways in which race, power, and privilege affect those our organization reaches. But striving to do business in such a way that race does not determine outcomes is a significant undertaking that requires an internal cultural shift, leading through change, and an evaluation of board, staff, and program policies - from top to bottom. 

This month we are joined by Jennifer Drake Fantroy, Consultant at The Rome Group, who will lead a conversation to examine how leaders in the philanthropic and nonprofit sectors can proactively shape an organization's culture to prioritize equity, anticipate changes in staff and volunteer climate, and use principles of change management to successfully handle this critical shift in operations.
