Equity in the Center


Equity in the Center works to shift mindsets, practices, and systems within the social sector to increase racial equity. We envision a future where nonprofit and philanthropic organizations define, implement and advance race equity internally while advocating and centering it in their work externally.


Awake to Woke to Work: Building a Race Equity Culture Publication Coming April 24th! 


Check out our New Infographic!

The new infographic introduces the levers to move organizations through the Race Equity Cycle. In the preview of the Senior Leadership Lever, we demonstrate the characteristics and actions of organizations in all stages of the Race Equity Cycle (Awake, Woke, and Work).
