THE RACE MATTERS INSTITUTE – WHAT WE DO

The goal of the Race Matters Institute (RMI) is to strengthen our nation by ensuring that all children, families, and communities thrive.  We do this by helping nonprofits, government units, community organizations, and philanthropies increase their mission-driven results across their diverse constituencies.  Our customized training, technical assistance, coaching, and product development produce strategies and concrete actions that enable an organization to be more intentional in its operations and programs about advancing racially equitable outcomes.  Our particular focus on organizational policies, programs, practices, and protocols complements the work of allies in the field of racial equity who offer strategies for personal and interpersonal change.

Testimonials
"…We wanted to participate in a training that discussed the importance of how the color of one's skin has helped create our public policies…so that as we advocate and work in partnership with key stakeholders, we can negotiate changes in policies and practices that try to address the disparities we see today. Race Matters was a journey for self-reflection and provided a framework to pursue strategies to overcome disparities more explicitly and equipped us to be “racially informed.” It especially helped us discuss how we wanted to change the long-standing messaging around the racial divide and the disparities in our city."
