Whats White Got to do With It

UNA is excited to offer "What’s White Got To Do With It? Disrupting Race-Based Inequities in Well-Intentioned Nonprofits Webinar (Part 1)" presented by our partner organization, North Carolina Center for Nonprofits. This webinar is the first in a series of webinars geared toward equity, diversity, and inclusion. We are proud to partner with North Carolina Center for Nonprofits to bring these important topics and discussions to the nonprofits of Utah. 

What’s White Got To Do With It? Disrupting Race-Based Inequities in Well-Intentioned Nonprofits Webinar (Part 1)
Key moments in United States history have established whiteness as the default, the norm, the supreme culture. This webinar will explore the socio-political and historical contexts of whiteness and how the white dominant culture by which most nonprofits operate was constructed and has been upheld through policy, legal decisions, and Eurocentric cultural values. Participants will have a chance to explore their own roles as gatekeepers within their organizations and how they can disrupt race-based inequity by leveraging their own individual and collective power.
