Conference Overview

Envisioning Equity: Strategic Planning for Inclusive Organizations is a day-long conference for organizations to learn how to align a strategic planning process so that the resulting systems, structures, policies and procedures create a more equitable organization. Learning how to apply a racial equity impact analysis to this work will play a fundamental role throughout the day.

The conference will include keynote speakers, a panel discussion featuring people who are engaged in this work at their organizations, and a variety of breakout sessions with people specializing in different aspects of racial equity and strategic planning to help teams begin to uncover a path forward.

Bring a colleague (or a few!) and join staff and board teams from nonprofits, funders, and other organizations for a day of learning, reflection, and forward momentum.
