The Race Matters Institute – What We Do

The Race Matters Institute works toward a more just and vibrant nation where every child, family and community thrives.  For more than a decade we have helped government units, nonprofits, community-based and regional organizations, philanthropies, and state and national networks to become more race-informed and equity-focused in their work. Our customized training, technical assistance, coaching, and product development advance concrete actions in both operations and programming that strengthen an organization’s mission performance.  We focus specifically on promoting racial equity in organizational strategies, policies, and practices as a complement to the work of others who focus on racial equity at the individual and interpersonal levels.  Please let us know how we can assist you.
