2018 Equity in the Center Summit- October 9-10 in Baltimore, MD


Thank you for your interest in the 2018 #EiCSummit!  Our team is excited about the thought provoking plenaries and workshops being developed for the October convening. In addition to exploring research from Equity in the Center’s (EiC) Awake to Woke to Work: Building a Race Equity Culture publication, 2018 Summit themes will include decolonizing the social sector, addressing race equity in an intersectional context, and the role of foundations in driving race equity funding strategies.

Building on momentum the EiC network has gained since the 2017 Summit, our goal is to provide opportunities for leaders and organizations to increase capacity to drive race equity internally and across the sector. Nonprofit and philanthropic leaders will provide case examples of how organizations have successfully moved through the Race Equity Cycle, as well as share insights on the funding and capacity building strategies and tactics necessary to make progress toward race equity within organizations, across the social sector and in society broadly.
