21 Day Equity Challenge

Thursday, May 20, 2021 - 12:00pm to Friday, June 18, 2021 - 12:00pm

Please join United Way of Southeastern Michigan for the 21-Day Equity Challenge! 

The 21-Day Equity Challenge is a self-paced email and community engagement campaign that runs from May 21-June 18. The goal is to provide participants with curated resources to learn more about historical inequities in our region and how they can take action to promote equity and inclusion within their day-to-day lives. Participants will receive an email each weekday that focuses on a different equity-based topic. In addition to daily emails, there is a virtual community-wide kickoff event, closing ceremony, and weekly facilitated roundtable sessions to discuss the topics with fellow participants. Please see the one-pager attached for more information. The Challenge is FREE for all participants. 
 
Please sign-up via this link: https://unitedwaysem.org/about-us/equity-and-inclusion/21-day-equity-challenge/
 
We also have a full toolkit, which has resources to recruit, promote, and share your involvement in the Challenge. That can be found here: https://unitedwaysem.org/about-us/our-partners/partner-toolkits/equity-challenge-toolkit/

Embark on a journey to deepen our understanding of and develop our willingness to confront racism, sexism and other forms of inequity and inequality.
