Learn from leaders of community-based organizations who found ways to disrupt mainstream organizational and community development processes to advance racial equity. This interactive workshop will feature new research from PolicyLink on innovative ways to achieve more equitable outcomes such as non-traditional partnerships, organizational shifts, and arts and cultural strategies. 

Presenters will share stories about how these new ways of working advanced racial equity in housing, parks, economic development, and arts and cultural programs. Workshop participants will explore concrete steps that their own organizations can take to deepen their approach to racial equity internally and externally.
