Institutional Transformation Coaching Series

Equity Alliance of the North Coast has been working with self-selected organizations, institutions, and collaboratives of various sizes and sectors to participate in a 6-part coaching series led by the Government Alliance for Race & Equity (GARE).

This coaching series focused on organizations, government and nonprofit agencies that want to learn about and evolve their practices and policies to become more inclusive. Each of the cohorts (peer learning groups) attended six sessions of training with Julie Nelson, Senior Vice-President at Race Forward (previously Center for Social Inclusion) and Senior Fellow at Haas Institute for a Fair and Inclusive Society at UC Berkeley, and Dwayne Marsh, Vice President of Institutional and Sectoral Change at Race Forward. The series began in September, 2016 and culminated in November 2017. While the coaching series has come to a close, the cohorts will continue their work into 2018 and beyond to make their organizations and institutions - and, as a result, our communities - more inclusive and equitable.

This racial equity work gives us a toolbox that helps us see things more clearly and then work in a logical and outcome-oriented way to address them.
