The City of Dallas’ Office of Equity – Equity Division in partnership with the Center for Urban and Racial Equity (CURE) will host a virtual one-day training on Monday, December 7 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. titled, Understanding Institutional and Structural Racism.
“This intro training is intended to engage with our community, develop meaningful dialogue and a shared understanding of institutional inequities impacting communities of color, highlighting key concepts that apply to all, said Chief of Equity and Inclusion, Liz Cedillo-Pereira.”
The one-day virtual CURE Training aims to develop participants’ analysis of race, racism and racial equity by gaining an understanding of the diﬀerence between internalized, interpersonal, institutional, structural racism and racial justice concepts. Participants will learn how these concepts apply to their engagement with colleagues, as well as the people and communities they serve.
“The Office of Equity and Inclusion–Equity Division works to shape a city government and Dallas where everyone can thrive by normalizing, organizing and operationalizing equity,” said Interim Equity Officer, Dr. Lindsey Wilson. “This intro training supports the normalization of equity by building shared language and exploring the various forms of racism. ”
The Center for Urban and Racial Equity (CURE) partners with people and organizations to advance equity through policy, systems, institutional, community and societal change. Through research and analysis, strategic planning and consulting, and training and community engagement strategies that address systemic barriers to racial equity, CURE is able to work locally and nationally to implement equity-centered initiatives in collaboration with government agencies and local, state and national organizations.
