Racial Equity Workshop
NEARC is welcoming back Clinton Johnson for a special Racial Equity Workshop on Wednesday, September 29th from 12pm-1pm. We invite you to engage in brave discussions with your colleagues, as you learn about applying an intersectional equity lens. Together we will explore, assess, and address racial injustice. We will gain insight into how to center the perspectives of those with the greatest need.

Clinton leads Esri's Racial Equity team and he also founded and leads the NorthStar of GIS, a community organization focused on equity and belonging for people Black / African diaspora in GIS. He is also an advocate for representation, inclusion, and belonging for people from underrepresented groups in GIS and STEM more broadly. In this event, Clinton will encourage us to take an empathic approach to technology, that begins with understanding real-world challenges faced by diverse communities and finding creative ways to implement practical solutions.
