Equity 101: Starting the Equity Conversation
Oct 23 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

The word “equity” is everywhere these days– but what does it really mean? What if it means something different to me, to my colleagues, and to my community? A crucial part of the “equity conversation” is creating meaningful opportunities for people to connect to why equity matters to them. Connecting to their “why” helps people to individually and collectively define what equity means and looks like in their own context.

Please join NEP Associates Ana Moreno and Asali Waters for a 1-hour, interactive webinar to learn some of the why, what, and how of NEP’s over 20 years of experience in initializing equity conversations in service of transforming the life trajectories of historically underserved youth and families. In our view – equity is a process, not just an outcome. Walk away with new insights and some concrete tools for getting the equity conversation started in your context.
