Highlights of the Intensive

Groundwater -In this lively and participatory presentation, organizers from The Race Equity Institute (REI), will use stories and data to present a perspective that racism is fundamentally structural in nature. By examining characteristics of modern-day racial inequity, the presentation introduces participants to an analysis that most find immediately helpful and relevant. 

Tour of Stagville State Historic Site –Located in Durham, NC Historic Stagville comprises the remnants of one of the largest plantations of the pre-Civil War South.This experience will serve as a ‘real world’ experience in the realities of the United States. It will be a time of stepping back into time to capture a glimpse of the duality of experiences where inequity, lack of diversity and inclusion are an everyday occurrence. The tour will be followed with a debriefing session.

Strategies for Leadership, Transformation and Equity: Using the Tools of the Community-Based Participatory Research Approach (CBPR/A) -Licensed practitioners, non-profit organizations, funding agencies, clinicians, researchers and communities are increasingly calling for collaborative models that involve intended beneficiaries in planning, organizing, bringing about, and sustaining community transformation. Collaboration can be challenging, however, given the different cultures, structures, priorities, leadership, power, policies and practices of community, clinic and agency stakeholders. CBPR/A offers a useful approach that can support collaborative efforts in multiple domains, not just research and bring community transformation.
