Participation on the Citywide Racial Equity Team is an on-ramp to building infrastructure in your department.

• A Racial Equity training curriculum,

• Example policies and practices that help advance racial equity,
• Support on developing a Racial Equity Action Plan for their Departments,
• On-going peer to peer consultations with a citywide racial equity team,
•Technical assistance from the Human Rights Commission on implementing racial equity action plans.

After the 12 month deep dive, employees work with the Citywide Racial Equity Team to institutionalize best practices for creating racial equity apply the Racial Equity Tool in their departments, and creating better outcomes for all.

Program Requirements:
24 hours/month (average) for trainings and cohort work
