The 21-Week Equity Challenge is a powerful opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of how inequity and racism affect our lives and our community.
How it works:
Individuals are encouraged to take on the challenge themselves, or form groups for discussion and reflection.
Those who sign up will receive an email at the beginning of each week for 21 weeks, starting Monday, August 30, 2021 to Monday, January 17, 2022.
Weekly topics take participants through a journey that starts with understanding internalized racism and explores how racism permeates person-to-person interactions, institutions, and social structures.
The experience is intended to deepen understanding, suggest ways to act, and helps launch what we hope will be a lifelong commitment to improving equity and inclusion in our communities.
This Challenge is being hosted by United Way of Wisconsin. To learn more about it, visit the Equity Challenge page on their website.
