As a continuation of the 101 level course, you will get an opportunity to dig deeper and learn from peers about best practices and shared challenges. Structural changes to daily operations, budgeting, communications, decision-making and community leadership, are a critical component for mayors and other city leaders seeking traction on advancing a racial equity strategy. Specialists from the NLC REAL (Race, Equity and Leadership) team and the Government Alliance on Race & Equity (GARE) will demonstrate how to break down barriers and find solutions related to the specific challenges of addressing institutional and structural racism in local government.
