About This Course

Structural inequality is a fierce, ever-present, challenging force that has framed the thinking, behavior, and actions of individuals and institutions since the beginning of U.S. history. Understanding inequity and effectively dismantling it require an equally fierce, consistent, and committed effort. Diversity and inclusion initiatives in many industries throughout the country have pioneered approaches that can help preservation leaders proactively understand and address inequality in their organizations and communities. This module will explore those approaches, help learners imagine strategic plans that suit their needs, and examine inclusion frameworks that advance place-based organizations.
