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.


2018 Equity in the Center Summit

Our team is excited about the thought provoking plenaries and workshops being developed for the October convening. In addition to exploring research from EiC’s Awake to Woke to Work: Building a Race Equity Culture publication, 2018 Summit themes include decolonizing the social sector, addressing race equity in an intersectional context, and the role of foundations in driving race equity funding strategies. For further details, on Summit logistics check out our Summit Page.

At this time the 2018 Summit has sold out!

However, we can still give you a virtual seat in the room at the 2018 Summit when we livestream some of the sessions! Sign up for Equity in the Center’s mailing list to receive updates and livestream links when they become available in early October.
