Anti-Racism Policy Clinic

Date: Tuesday, December 8th, 2020
Time: 1PM EST
Free for IMAA and MANO members
Session offered in English

IMAA and MANO have partnered to bring a series of policy clinics to our members over the coming months.

The Anti-Racism Policy Clinic looks to expand the sector’s anti-racism work, not only by examining existing organizational policies, but by going beyond and exploring how these policies are enacted, or not; how they contribute to systemic change or how they might hinder real transformation. 

Facilitators will review a sample of existing policies from the sector, provide feedback and an action plan to see these activated by indicating milestones and wins in a process that is complex, takes time, organizational and sectoral buy-in and requires both human and financial resources.

Particular attention will be paid to the challenges faced by organizations as well as strategies to move beyond diversity and into inclusion, belonging, equity and retention.
The session will be facilitated by Malissa Bryan and Jess Notwell from the Rainbow Diversity Institute.

To sign up, please email Adriana at with the name of the person attending from your organization, their job or volunteer title/role, name of organization or group and email address. 

Registrations will be managed on a first come-first served basis as we are limited to 24 participants nation-wide.

If you would like to submit your anti-racism policies for review, please indicate whether these can be shared with the group at the clinic in an anonymized format, or not.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch with us!
