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.
