How Our Firm Helps
As a guiding party to the Digital Equity Anti-Racism Initiative, FC Hurdle via The Colors of the NW Model will help facilitate and support the progression towards racial and digital equity. These racial equity experiences will consist of individual interviews and additional anti-racism professional seminars for Digital Inclusion Network members
Elevating the voice of Digital Inclusion Network (DIN) members to inform our current practices and the upcoming Digital Equity Action Plan 2.0
Supporting Digital Inclusion Network community to take a stance as an anti-racist collective
Providing tools to assist the Digital Inclusion Network to build or expand partnerships with Black, Indigenous, Latinx, and Asian/Pacific Islander led community based organizations/businesses
Each DIN partnering organization should consist of a team of 2-3 members. This includes at least one executive-level member and staff that regularly participate in the DIN
Two Step Process
Interviews are an opportunity for the Hurdle team to assess the DIN member’s current approach to racial equity and initial thoughts on how to take a stronger anti-racist stance as a Digital Inclusion Network community. The Hurdle team will use the anonymous information gathered to prepare for the Professional Development Experience. Staff that regularly participate in DIN meetings are encouraged to participate in an interview. If the staff representative does not hold an executive-level position, we invite members of your executive staff to participate as well.
2. PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT EXPERIENCE:
Following the interviews, DIN members and their executive staff are invited to attend 4 2-hour professional development experiences designed to provide tools to do the personal work necessary to address systemic racism and our collective digital equity efforts. Again, DIN member representatives and other members of your executive team are encouraged to attend all 4 sessions.
Mark your Calendars: Professional Development Experience for DIN members.
Each executive-level member of a DIN partnering organization and staff that regularly participate in the DIN are encouraged to participate in this 8hr professional development experience.
– February 2nd, 4th, and 9th from 9:30AM-11:30AM
