Register: CA4Health’s 21-Day Racial Equity & Social Justice Challenge
PHI’s CA4Health’s Racial Equity & Social Justice 21-Day Challenge will begin on September 14, 2020.
This challenge was created for anyone interested in learning, analyzing, and reflecting more about racial equity and examining these issues in our own communities–whether you consider yourself an ally, advocate, or an interested community member.
What is racial equity?
It is both an outcome and a process. As a process, we apply racial equity to policies, systems, structures and institutions by analyzing data so we can identify, uncover and remove barriers that produce disparate (unfavorable) outcomes based on race. As an outcome, racial equity is the condition that would be achieved if one’s racial identity no longer predicted, in a statistical sense, how one fares in society.
"It helped me give myself permission to make mistakes and be courageous enough to look in the mirror and keep learning more and doing better."
In June, PHI’s CA4Health program launched its first Racial Equity & Social Justice 21-Day Challenge. More than 450 people participated, and about 40 joined weekly discussion sessions for additional sharing and learning. Some participants also worked within their organizations to host and facilitate their own discussion groups. Find out what they learned and how they are using it now.
Why should a group or team at my organization do the Challenge?
This Challenge is one of the most powerful interventions an organization can do to build community and create an inclusive culture. The Challenge can lead to transformative results, including:
- Building new, positive habits that can change ourselves, our teams, our organizations and our communities.
- Taking small actions alongside one another to create momentum and a sense of teamwork.
- Creating a profound, elevating experience to increase the likelihood that participants will take action.
- Participating in meaningful conversations about racism and social justice.
Anyone can sign up to receive daily prompts and readings; to participate in the facilitated weekly discussion groups please register as a CA4Health member (spots are limited).
