Join us to take practical action on race equity in civil society.
Home Truths 2 will offer practical resources and guidance to civil society in general, including ways to think about racism, anti-racism and race equity; undertake ethnic pay disparities audits and actions; and make race equity core to mission.
The Further, Faster cohort of civil society leaders will come together to learn about and take action on anti-racism, and is a key element of Home Truths 2. The aim of the cohort is to:
- Help civil society leaders to work in depth to become more effective change agents
- Accelerate anti-racist and race equity practice in the participants’ organisations.
If you are ready to make anti-racism and race equity core to your organisation’s mission and crucially, take action, we invite you to be brave, bold and ambitious in applying to become part of Home Truths 2 ‘Further, Faster’.
- The final design of Further, Faster is yet to be confirmed, following a tender process to appoint expert facilitators (You can check the invitation to tender)
- Participants will be asked to pay a fee to take part. Fees will be scaled according to size of organization and will be finalised following final design of the scheme with the expert facilitators.
- You are invited to register your interest in participating. There will be a formal application process to follow.
Who and what Further, Faster is for
Further, Faster is a unique effort to elevate the capabilities of civil society leaders to elevate their organisation’s race equity practice and to help to demonstrate what real change can look like.
It is for senior leaders wishing to:
- Build trusting, challenging and supportive communities of action through small group work
- Encourage and enable ambitious, meaningful and practical solutions for anti-racism and race equity in civil society organisations
- Achieve and advance meaningful and demonstrable action on anti-racism in their organisations over the 12 months of the programme and be willing to share the experience – good and bad – of making change with the wider sector.
Places for Further, Faster are limited:
- We will intake up to 50 civil society leaders who are already taking meaningful action on anti-racism and race equity.
- Involvement is expected to be for 12 months
- The main method of improving practice is envisaged to be via regular facilitated small group sessions and personalised work prior to and in between sessions. There will be a minimum of four small group sessions throughout the 12 months, all to be held online, with potential for one or two in person events.
- Participants will be asked to make a financial contribution to the expert facilitation of Further, Faster to demonstrate commitment and equitable funding for this work. Fees will be scaled according to size of organisation by income.
