“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.


We are excited to offer an updated in Challenge in 2022! 

We will be updating the content with recent events and new resources, so
even if you participated last year, you'll find more to learn. 

Emails will begin on January 17th and wrap up on February 11th with weekly dialogues on Fridays beginning January 21st.

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!!
