Racial Equity Institute

Virtual Phase I Workshop: Registration Now Open

February 2021 Dates Coming Soon

NBN will be hosting their next virtual Phase I Workshop REI Phase I is a two-day workshop experience that begins a process for those wishing to proactively address racism and build an equitable community for all. REI does not place blame or focus on personal bias; it instead provides a historical, cultural, and structural analysis of modern racism that challenges participants to think critically about the structures that create racial inequity in their communities. Registration is now open for individuals and small groups.

Please note changes to registration: A virtual workshop is also 2 full days and conducted via Zoom. Only one participant per registration. Multiple people cannot share a screen. Due to the changes in the workshop's structure in order to accommodate for the virtual setting we unfortunately are unable to offer discounted seats for alumni at this point in time. There is limited scholarship funding available for first-time participants. To learn how to apply for a community scholarship, please contact Anna Seip at aseip@nbncommunity.org.
