Racial Equity and Inclusion in Nonprofit News

REINN allows leaders to join an ongoing process of building racial equity into their organizational practices. Each element is designed to be accessible, particularly to small and mid-size news operations, in any stage of their DEI work. It’s a living, evolving program based on member needs and participant feedback, so please check this space regularly to find new opportunities.


Interrupt Stereotypes, Microaggressions, and Implicit Bias: On June 23 join INN and CircleUp for an interactive, live, skills-building workshop on uncovering and addressing conscious and unconscious biases to create a safe, fair, and inclusive workplace. You will learn tools to interrupt stereotypes, microaggressions, and implicit bias when you make this important step toward transforming your work environment.

Make Your Collaborations Equitable (April 28)
Building Values Statements (March 31)
The Racial Equity Institute‘s Groundwater Approach (March 3)
