The Race Matters Institute – What We Do

The Race Matters Institute (RMI) builds the capacity of our clients in ways that result in a stronger, more just nation by ensuring that every child, family and community thrive.  We do this by working along side nonprofits, government units, community organizations, and philanthropies increase their mission-driven results in their various sectors.  Our customized Race Matters training, technical assistance, coaching, and product development produce concrete actions that enable organizations to be more intentional in advancing racially equitable outcomes in both operations and programming.  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.
