FWS, NPS and USGS permanent employees interested in learning more about racial equity and social justice.
Summary and Objectives:
A Groundwater Presentation is a three-hour introduction to Racial Equity. In this lively and participatory presentation, REI organizers will use stories and data to present a perspective that racism is fundamentally structural in nature. By examining characteristics of modern-day racial inequity, the presentation introduces participants to an analysis that most find immediately helpful and relevant.
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
- Explore the Racial Equity Institute's fish/lake/groundwater analysis of structural racism.
- Examine racial identity and equity and its interaction with institutional culture through stories and data.
