Racial Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (REDI) Working Group Training Series: 4-part series

We are excited to offer a 4-session training series for those interested in starting (or continuing) the essential work of incorporating REDi practices & principles into your community (including online/physical spaces, youth/adult programming, religious school, High Holiday planning, membership outreach & more).  *Please note that session 1, Racial Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion (REDI) 101, is a standalone workshop, open to anyone & everyone, which you can select in the registration*

This series will provide you with the opportunity to learn how to create a REDI Working Group focused on utilizing the URJ Congregational (or Camp) Assessment, so that you can identify both short & long term goals & establish action plans towards creating an inclusive community for individuals & families from a wide range of marginalized backgrounds.   

This training will consist of four 90-minute live sessions. Please note that anyone joining us for this series will be asked to commit to attending all four sessions, as each session builds upon the previous one.  This will be an interactive training, so please plan on being an active participant.
