At The Equity Imperative, we envision the day when all organizations become sanctuary sites for equity. Our goal is to equip practitioners to make advancing racial equity the core of their everyday work so that designed initiatives live beyond our partnership. We collaborate with our partners to identify racial equity problems, diagnose their causes, and design context-driven systemic solutions.

The most impactful learning for me was the challenging of the dominant view of racism. I have never thought about this before and this really shook my cognitive construct. I am deeply appreciative of moments where new learning transforms my schema and forces me to reevaluate the lens through which I view the world.
