Operationalize Racial Equity
in Everyday Practice


The Frameworks and Support You Need to Make Meaningful, Transformative Change

Operationalizing racial equity and justice in nonprofit organizations and government agencies requires a range of skills, relationships and a roadmap including frameworks and strategies to effectively sequence and manage transformation processes with care, intentionality, trust, and accountability.

Leading Racial Equity Organizational Change is designed to support change facilitators—including race, equity and inclusion directors, managers, trainers and consultants—with a comprehensive set of tools, training, coaching, peer learning and community to support you and your team in doing the work of building antiracist organizations.

About CURE

CURE has been guiding organizational leaders on how to mobilize resources and be accountable for racial equity since 2018.

We center the lived experiences of people of color and marginalized communities through deep listening, policy and data analysis, community engagement and organizational change strategies. As change facilitators, we have applied our Racial Equity Organizational Change approach and framework to support transformation processes that create space for re-envisioning and re-orienting priorities and build skills and capacity to practice racial equity and justice.

While there is no “right way” or given path to racial equity change and transformation, we’re excited—through this and other offerings—to support the ecosystem of racial equity practitioners through learning experiences,  sharing tools and resources, and creating opportunities for building community and connections that advance the practice of racial equity.

“For me, I learned tools and solutions to make my own work inclusive, respectful, and transparent. This is also the first time I had the opportunity to listen to Black staff share the hurt they have endured. It was eye-opening and heartbreaking but has energized me to do my part in building a more inclusive culture at work.”
