Equity Praxis Workshop

Hello to all of you who have attended 3+ hours of Institutional Equity training with RNW!

We welcome you to join us for a free Equity Praxis Workshop.

Training is only as useful as what you do with it. This is a chance to celebrate your successes, strategize around the challenges you’re facing, and re-equip yourself with tools and support to keep moving the needle on equity in your organization.

This workshop is only open to people who have attended RNW’s institutional equity training of 3 hours or more. If you have not yet attended, stay tuned to our training calendar. We’ll offer the training again in May and again in the Fall.
