REI’s Groundwater Presentation: An Introduction to Racial Equity

This interactive presentation provides participants with critical knowledge about the impact of systemic and institutional racism in our society in areas such as education, healthcare, and criminal justice.  In the half-day Groundwater Approach workshop, trainers use data and stories from a variety of sources to demonstrate the ongoing and pervasive impact of race.

This research-based presentation focuses on the following six points that are essential to understanding the realities of systemic racism as a predictor of outcomes in all institutions. 

1. Racial inequity looks the same across systems.

2. Socio-economic difference does not explain the racial inequity.

3. Systems contribute significantly to disparities.

4. The systems-level disparities cannot be explained by a few ‘bad apples’ or ill-intentioned gatekeepers.

5. Poor outcomes are concentrated in certain geographic communities; usually poor communities and communities of color. 

6. An analysis that includes race often draws starkly different conclusions than one that does not.
