Learn: Take Harvard’s Implicit Association Test to assess where you are at in your anti-racist journey and begin taking courses around diversity, inclusion, and equity. This can include personal learning (books, movies, podcasts, etc.) or formal training spaces provided by the Y or external partners. We suggest the following formal trainings to start. Please speak with your supervisor to learn more about registering for these trainings.

Orientation to Diversity, Inclusion, and Global (DIG)
Dimensions of Diversity
Cultural Lenses
Advancing Equity: Understanding My Biases

Invest: Personally, invest in local communities of color including people of color run non-profits, business, and grassroots organizations.

Act: Continue your learning journey past the current situation, don’t let this be a one-time instance. Join a local anti-racist community or grassroots organization (such as Be the Bridge) to continue your learning, respond to instances of injustice in your local community, and stay involved in local politics.

Sustain: Don’t stop the conversation after media stops covering instances of racism – talk to your friends and family about race, even if they are uncomfortable. Encourage open mindedness, transparency and practice Listen First skills in these important discussions.
