Advancing Equity: A Case Study
January 17, 2020 @ 9:30 AM – 3:30 PM EST
The Racial Equity Teaching Case is very different from case studies you may already be familiar with. Instead of doing the analysis and drawing conclusions or lessons for you, during this special session you and your colleagues from across philanthropy will explore the relationships and tension points in the case together to make judgments about key decisions.
We’ll draw insights from the story about how a racial equity lens influences decisions over the lifetime of an initiative. You will be put in the role of decision makers who are confronted with problems and varying options for solutions as the story unfolds.
The Racial Equity Teaching Case was developed from The Kresge Foundation’s Climate Resilience and Urban Opportunity (CRUO) initiative. CRUO marked the first time the foundation used an explicit racial equity lens to design and implement an initiative.
Case teaching promotes sound judgment, astute situational analysis, critical thinking, and creativity. Please come prepared with a learning disposition to engage with colleagues.
