A hierarchy of human value is embedded in the policies and practices of Organizations who have not engaged in racial equity work. This lack of awareness in Organizations can contribute to the already overwhelming racial disparities marginalized communities face daily. This problem is heightened within Organizations that serve or want to serve communities of color facing racial inequities and disparities. Often, BIPOC leaders within those Organizations carry this burden and burn out or leave.
To move towards equity, Organizations must first address unacknowledged historical oppression, then develop a common understanding of current conditions. This bifocal approach will build a foundation for developing equitable strategies.
To support the transformation of these Organizations on the necessity of racial healing, adaptive leadership, and racial equity policy implementation, TRHT Chicago will be launching the Truth, Healing and Equity Fellowship (T.H.E Fellowship). T.H.E. Fellowship is a 10-month leadership program for organizational teams. Over the course of this journey, the awarded Organizations will work together and become part of a larger cohort.
Be on the lookout for our official T.H.E. Fellowship criteria announcement, timeline, and more.
Until T.H.E. Fellowship officially launches, be sure to check out our Organization Racial Healing Circles
