Fundamentals of Facilitation for Racial Justice Work

Are you looking for new ways to help people who are different from one another talk about racism and then figure out what to do together? Have you ever been leading a group and been stopped in your tracks by someone’s comment or question?

In our work as leaders, knowing about structural racism and understanding the difference between “inclusion” and “equity” are one thing; being effective at helping other people talk about them is another. The workshop will deepen your skills to do just that, in both virtual and in-person environments.

Please note that participants in Fundamentals of Facilitation for Racial Justice Work (FFRJW) should enter this workshop already having some level of familiarity with racial justice concepts. FFRJW is offered as a series of five three-hour sessions on Zoom.

Additional details about can be found on the FFRJW page on our website. Costs are inclusive of all prep, planning, delivery, and tech support time, as well as time following the session in support of integration of the learning and e-materials for 24 participants.

  • Nonprofit Organizations: $28,750
  • Foundations: $41,000
  • Social Venture/For-Profits: $49,000


Advancing Racial Justice in Organizations

Advancing Racial Justice in Organizations (ARJ) is a capacity-building offering designed for teams of three to four people who want to develop plans for advancing racial justice and racial equity within their organizations or networks. The ideal team will include members of a new or ongoing Race, Equity, and Inclusion Team. Your team will be part of a cohort, learning alongside other teams about resources to design an organizational change process that includes different kinds of learning and planning activities to further racial equity in your work and internally in your organization or network.

ARJ includes:

  • A strategic and supportive opportunity to learn alongside your own colleagues as well as those from four or five other organizations or networks, with the guidance of IISC’s team of experienced racial equity trainers 
  • In-depth assignments to explore your organization’s readiness, assets, and challenges, as well as your personal strengths and growing edges
  • Twenty-two hours of workshop time, spread over six online learning sessions (four sessions will be three hours long; two will be five hours long)
  • Detailed homework assignments using tools to assist your team in collaboratively designing and implementing your racial equity change process and action plan. These assignments are designed to be completed with your ARJ team, as well as with your wider equity team and other organizational leaders and stakeholders.
  • Opportunities for relationship building and coaching from your organizational team members and other members of the cohort
  • Additional time with the trainers is provided to the REI team in support of the learning and planning for implementation, making ARJ a somewhat more consultative capacity building opportunity when offered within one organization.

More details can be found on the ARJ page on our website. The all-inclusive cost of ARJ for nonprofit organizations is just under $55,000 with up to 22 participants. Pricing for foundations and social venture/for-profits is slightly higher.
