Foundations and nonprofits  alike often struggle to communicate effectively about the importance of racial equity in their work. That task has become even more difficult in the current political and social environment in the United States, which is often dominated by division, polarization, and fear. Having the skills to persuade skeptical audiences and activate existing supporters is increasingly necessary for the successful delivery of any organization's mission. Additionally, it is critical to understand the role of different media platforms for reaching and moving disparate audiences. Fortunately, research and experience from around the country point to clear lessons for communicating successfully about equity and promoting positive solutions.

In this presentation called, “Shifting the Narrative to Advance Racial Equity,” Alan Jenkins of The Opportunity Agenda will share best practices and new approaches proven to advance equity across issues and communities. He will also share the results of new public opinion and media research, highlight relevant case studies, and offer practical tips designed for donors and nonprofits.


Upon completion of this webinar, you should be able to:

  • Promote racial equity within your organization
  • Advocate for racial equity with external stakeholders
  • Apply best practices for communicating issues through a racial equity lens
