Tools to anchor your equity workTools can help build new habits

I think racial equity work consists of two parts: courage and technical skills. This page deals with the latter. I’d like to share the tools that I use most often in my work with clients. I work primarily with the tools from the Race Matters Toolkit and have for a number of years. This set of tools is concise and user-friendly. One of the keys to sustaining race equity work is to systematically change habits. Tools can help operationalize new habits and change behaviors in meaningful ways.
