Racial Equity & Tech Planning
NTEN courses run for one week and are offered twice a year.
Be able to use racially centered questions to guide conversations and decision making.
Technology and Equity
Learn to identify and address how equity impacts everyday technology decisions.
Gain strategies to begin (or continue) influencing and stewarding equity work into your current role and organization, regardless of position in organization.
Your organization’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion must reach beyond the DEI committee or the equity officer. A DEI policy and a focus on racial equity have implications that stretch across an organization from hiring practices, event planning, and equipment acquisition to the development of technology roadmaps and beyond.
Join Tristan Penn, the Community Engagement & Equity Manager at NTEN, for a course that will discuss how nonprofits have infused race-centered diversity, equity, and inclusion practices into all aspects of organizational operation. The course will include an examination of how technology decisions and practices are connected with DEI work. Participants will build skills needed to create opportunities for all staff (most importantly staff of color, LGBQTIA+, and staff with disabilities) to authentically and meaningfully engage with internal DEI conversations, decisions, and the development of strategic plans.
This course will examine how organizational DEI practices relate to technology in the nonprofit context, as well as your organization’s technology roadmap. The course will address and inform the decision-making practices that demonstrate your commitment or lack of commitment to racial equity.
You should come into this course with an interest in and a beginning foundation in race-centered DEI work.
