Racial Equity Institute Trainings - Dayton

Join Dayton-area funders, community stakeholders and civic leaders for Racial Equity Institute’s (REI) racial equity trainings. REI’s thorough presentations on historical, institutional and systemic racism challenge deeply held assumptions and reveal – with sobering clarity – the devastating impact of persistent racial inequality on our nation’s most marginalized populations.

When other factors often cited as the probable reasons for health or social problems (e.g., income, education, parent involvement, access to health insurance, etc.) are controlled for in statistical analyses, race remains an important, independent predictor of health, social, education, criminal justice and other outcomes. Groundwater and Phase I Racial Equity Trainings will build your knowledge of racial inequities and disparities within our society.

Philanthropy Ohio will be offering two REI trainings in Dayton – the Groundwater Presentation, April 8, and the Racial Equity Workshop – Phase 1, April 9 – 10. Registrants may join one or both programs. More information on each can be found via the links below.

The Groundwater Presentation is a three-hour introduction to racial equity that uses stories and data to illustrate the structural and cross-sector nature of racism. (April 8)

The Phase I Racial Equity Workshop is a two-day training that provides talking points, historical factors and an organizational definition of racism. (April 9 – 10)


Presented in partnership with HealthPath Foundation of Ohio with gratitude to the Montgomery County ADAMHS Board for hosting this program in their community training space.
