DEI Toolkit 5: Accountability

About the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Toolkit
Activating and fully integrating your organization’s values for diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) will increase your organizational resilience, promote more ethical community partnerships, and increase your reputability and leadership in the field. Our 6-part DEI toolkit series provides frameworks and guidance so you can thoughtfully address historic inequities while building better practices and increasing your organization’s ability to work for a just and healthy world everyone can enjoy. 

Each toolkit is themed for accessibility and ease of use. You’ll find webinars, workshops, guides, templates, and activities to increase your organization’s readiness, competency, and capacity for diversity, equity, and inclusion throughout all components of your work. 

TREC is committed to growing our offerings through these toolkits, so please check back in for new additions throughout the year.  

DEI Toolkit 5: Accountability provides grounding frameworks so organizations don’t back down from their DEI commitments and goals—especially when there are challenges, consensus is elusive, or a repair needs to be made. Accountability ensures that you are resilient and continue moving your organization holistically forward in activating your DEI values to foster a healthy world for all.  

Toolkit Resources

Getting Woke, Staying Woke: What Does it Really Mean?

Being "woke," the state of being aware of and attentive to issues of racial and social justice, is a state you may or may not be in now–in this session, learn how to get there and stay there, and turn this attention into practice. This webinar focuses on key components of designing and implementing equitable practices. More specifically, we will examine the equity paradox: how we believe in equity, yet our behaviors and decisions don’t always reflect that belief.

DEI: Holding Ourselves and Each Other Accountable

This session will explore the myriad of ways accountability can show up as we journey towards more equitable and inclusive workplaces. How do we know we are doing it right? What happens when mistakes are made, or harm is done? We will look at accountability strategies to support your goals for diversity, equity, and inclusion and discuss how those intersect with your organizational culture.

Embedding Accountability and Sustaining DEI Initiatives

This resource includes three sequential exercises to understand and create greater DEI accountability. The exercises can be facilitated by an Executive Director or DEI lead for the full staff or the DEI committee across multiple sessions. Exercises #1 and #2 can also be used as pre-work for Exercise #3.
