How to Use a Racial Equity Toolkit for Decision making in a Predominantly White Organization
This session is geared primarily toward leaders in predominantly white midwifery organizations. Decisions are often made by white leadership without being aware of the white-dominant context of those decisions. Incorporation of a racial equity toolkit can help to create an intentional pause in the decision making process to consider all policies, initiatives, and actions with a racial equity lens. Racial equity impact analyses have been used in recent years by various governmental agencies in the United States and abroad with positive results, and emerging literature indicates that nonprofit organizations are having similarly positive results. This session proposes a stepwise framework for predominantly white midwifery organizations to incorporate a racial equity toolkit. Examples of the components of a midwifery-specific racial equity toolkit are included.
