“Not everything that is faced can be changed; but nothing can be changed

until it is faced.”                               -James Baldwin



The NH Workplace Racial Equity Learning Challenge provides individuals and teams in the New Hampshire workforce community a way to:

  • Learn about the history and dynamics of how racism manifests at the individual, interpersonal, organization, and systemic levels. 
  • Gain insights into NH history and current imperatives on issues relating to racial equity.
  • Discover local resources and leaders working on these issues so you can support, amplify, and/or complement this work.  
  • Have a space for dialogue with other organizational leaders to reflect and consider how you can take action and invest your resources for change in the most effective ways.


The 2021 Learning Challenge*, started January 18th, 2021, and ran for four weeks:

Daily email prompts
A daily email was sent on work days, with 21 days of content. Each email had a theme, with links to articles, videos, podcasts, or other resources, while questions encouraged both personal and team reflection. 


Weekly online dialogues
Each Friday, a facilitated Zoom meeting offered time for participants to dialogue about what they learned and to share ideas with other workplace leaders.


Action planning call
At the end of the series, this online workshop offered a space for participants to think about how to make positive changes in their relationships, communities, and institutions and get inspired by each other's ideas. 







Participation in the Learning Challenge is free and open to all, thanks to the support of our sponsors!


We encourage you to engage a team from your company to take on the challenge together and support each other in creating a more inclusive and diverse workplace!!
