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.

What's Race Got to Do With It?Use for data analysis

A powerful tool that connects root causes with disaggregated data. These connections are critically important for creating a shared understanding of the racial gaps (inequities) that their work addresses. I recommend this tool for any organization whose work includes confronting any from of racial inequity — so that’s everybody! The tool can also create a structural narrative for disaggregated data. The output from this analysis is called a “backmap”, which is similar to a logic model.
