Organizing for Racial Equity Within the Federal Government

This issue brief from the Government Alliance on Race and Equity focuses on unifying strategies and structures that facilitate a deep, widespread, and sustained commitment to racial equity across the whole of government. It outlines four basic strategies and each one includes actions that specific agencies can take: (1) Use an inside/outside strategy by building partnerships between government and the communities experiencing systemic racism; (2) Build capacity for lasting organizational change by providing training from experts and build Racial Equity Core Teams; (3) Build networked structures across the whole of federal government for long-term change through a centralized office and lifting up high-achieving agency practices; and (4) Prepare for and learn from internal and external backlash. This resource supports equity.
