YWCA Evanston/North Shore

Racial Equity Training

The YWCA's Racial Equity Training helps participants develop the skills and vocabulary necessary to engage in honest dialogue, in order to understand how systemic racism affects the lives of all who live and work in our communities. Trained facilitators help the group envision what racial equity could look like and identify roles individuals can take to move us, and the systems in which we participate, toward the goal of becoming equitable communities.

Join facilitators Eileen Hogan Heineman and Gloria Woods for our next series in February. You may register for the entire four-part series or choose one or more individual sessions. Each event will be held at the YWCA Evanston/North Shore, 1215 Church St. in Evanston, room 207.
