VIRTUAL REAL TALK – The Spartanburg Racial Equity Collaborative: Why It Matters
May 25, 2021 at 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
In January 2020, a diverse group of leaders from many of Spartanburg’s key community organizations and institutions began meeting to develop a plan for how to achieve racial equity in Spartanburg County. These meetings resulted in the formation of the Spartanburg Racial Equity Collaborative (SREC).
Join in for an informative and engaging SREC panel discussion regarding work to eliminate racial inequity throughout Spartanburg County. Learn how SREC is actively using its role in the community to address five strategic imperatives designed to facilitate the process of eradicating racism and racial inequalities through racial healing and systems change. The five strategic imperatives are: Advance Awareness, Education, and Training, Foster a Culture that Allows for Authentic & Transparent Dialogue, Advocate for Equitable Policy and Systems Change, Enhance Equity-Stratified Data and Evaluation, and Ensure Equitable Response to the Global Pandemic.
