Eli J. & Phyllis N. Segal Citizen Leadership Program

Learning Community Goals and Committee

The goals of our Segal Program Racial Justice & Antiracism Learning Community are:

  • To continue to expand Segal Fellows’ and The Segal Program’s knowledge about, capacity for, and commitment to racial justice and antiracism work.
  • To provide tools participants can use to continue to implement antiracist work in their own lives.
  • To begin to envision action steps and accountability points for how this work can be done together across the Segal Network.

Learning Community Planning Committee

Overall management of the logistics, people, and goals involved.  Meetings ~ once per month. Additional input requested via email between meetings.

Learning Community Programming Committee

With guidance from the committees, equity consultant and staff, planning trainings and group sessions to build out meaningful content for the learning community. Meetings ~once per month. Additional input requested via email between meetings.

Committee Members

Thank you to: Damond Ford, Bria Price, Robyn Pratt, Lamar Butler, Lila Givens, Leah Sakala, Jade Eckels, Chris Capron, Mariela Martinez, and Tam Emerson. (Susie and Kyle are staffing both committees and supporting the overall learning community.)

We are also working with Emerald Anderson-Ford, Equity Strategist and Trainer, as our equity consultant to help us plan the learning community, as well as to help us continue to incorporate antiracism work into the Segal Program more generally. Emerald is the Founder/Owner of Communities Reaching for Equity and Diversity (CRED). 

Opportunities to join us in shaping this Learning Community:
