“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 Learning Challenge*, starts January 18th, 2021, and runs for four weeks:

Daily email prompts
A daily email will be sent on work days, with 21 days of content. Each one has a theme, with links to articles, videos, podcasts, or other resources. Questions will encourage personal and team reflection on how this relates to your life and work. 


Weekly online dialogues
Each Friday, a facilitated Zoom meeting offers you time to dialogue about what you’re learning and share ideas with other workplace leaders.

 Dates: Jan. 22, Jan 29, Feb. 5 from 12 -1pm (Followed by optional half hour open discussion from 1-1:30)

You will receive a calendar invite for each dialogue that will be updated with the Zoom link.


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

Date: Tuesday, Mar. 2, 12 – 2:00 pm (tentative)
