Event to Focus on Racial Disparities

SEPTEMBER 26, 2013 - 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM ET


The causes behind disproportional and unequal outcomes for vulnerable communities and communities of color – namely race and institutionalized racism – will be the focus of this online session called “Achieving Equity Using a Culturally Competent Approach and Data Driven Strategies.” The session, led by Damaris Nicholson from the State of Texas Center for the Elimination of Disproportionality and Disparities, will focus on the manifestations of institutionalized racism and the impact of these issues, plus look at what’s being done to address this in Texas.  Participants will learn ways to improve outcomes for those working with vulnerable populations through data driven strategies and consider how to use data at the community level to reduce disparities. The session is free for members, $25 for nonmembers. Learn more
