I was a member of the City of Seattle's Race and Social Justice Core Team for two years
Challenge: We have a cross-jurisdictional core team. How do we get those built at each participating agency?
Challenge: additional city staff who are not able to participate on the Core team due to time constraints, but want to stay engaged and involved with Core team work. Our Core team is still going through the workshops.
Have people had success working from the grassroots up vs having the authority of govt
How do you integrate the work, as you are developing the plan, without waiting
How much is Core Team success and/or functioning specific to the staff of the governmental agency OR volunteers (formal or informal) in the community?
How do you create infastructure for accountability?
Challenge: Getting Core Team into a place within top management to have authority and accountability for the work.
Kimberlee is actually Director of the Office of Equity and Inclusion for City of Asheville, NC
Please feel free to keep the questions coming
Question for Lisa and Nannette: Regarding challenge #2, what are examples of rewards that you used to keep colleagues engaged to the work in exchange for their time and energy?
Does anyone have a charter and/or scope of work for their core teams that they can share? We are working on launching a core team in San Antonio. Zan.Gibbs@sanantonio.gov
Do we have access to these notes or slides?
aside from going back through the entire recording?
The slides and recording will be available online following the webinar
I wish the presenters would have provided us with their 4-5 bullet points that they were making vs. a photo. ;( #ijs
Juan Sebastian Arias
agreed. this is helpful to hear and some kind of key bullet point highlights from each presenter would also be great and useful to have.
examples are also included in the Core Team Guide!
We try to keep staff going by naming the small wins-getting race and equtiy measures inculded in performance reviews, access to training to build skills and advocating for leadership to fully incorporate this work, giving particpants compensatory time( ongoing)
