Racial Equity Matters

Greater Cincinnati Foundation (GCF) is committed to conversations about racial equity that build connections and move us forward with enhanced insights and shared purpose. To help advance that imperative goal, GCF will offer a series of education events, conducted by the Racial Equity Institute (REI), to focus on understanding and addressing the root causes of racism. 

REI training encompasses two parts — a half-day Groundwater session and a two-day Phase 1 session — both of which will be offered periodically throughout the year. 

  • The Groundwater session is an introduction to racial equity that uses stories and data to illustrate the structural and cross-sector nature of racism. The Groundwater session dovetails with the Phase 1 workshop and is recommended as an introduction to the full two-day workshop. 
  • The Phase 1 workshop is a two-day training that provides talking points, historical factors and an organizational definition of racism.
