Racial Equity & Social Justice Beyond the Walls of Your Institution

October 13 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm CDT

Free

Join Forefront and the Association of Consultants to Nonprofits for Ask A Consultant: a monthly interactive, solutions-oriented, virtual office hour with experienced consultants focusing on participants’ burning questions.

Building on our August conversation topic of building racial equity within an organization, this session will focus on grounding our public facing work in racial equity and social justice. Join us to Ask a Consultant your questions about taking meaningful action to end systemic injustice. We’ll go beyond statements and reports (although those are important, too) to look at centering BIPOC, advocacy, organizing, and other practices that work to fix inequity.

Panel Moderator

Terri A. Johnson is a native Chicagoan, shaped in part by the city’s segregation and dividing lines.  Living within those lines and seeing the impact of those divisions helped spark her lifelong commitment to justice and equity.  She has worked for solutions to the “wicked problem” of racism for over two decades.  She is a consultant with VEGA Partners, a social impact consultancy, and the founder of C-Change, a consulting practice that works with organizations and individuals to create space for thoughtful, creative and sustained organizational change.
