Talking About Equity in Action | Recorded Webinar

This webinar focuses on defining equity and examining actionable steps toward inclusive practices. The presenter reviews relationships between equity and organizational change and facilitates a space for open and productive dialogue that honors the narratives of people experiencing marginalization.
