Race Equity Audit

Crossroads approaches race equity audits by intentionally combining assessment processes with institutional capacity building so that during our engagement with the institution, institutional leaders have developed the capacity to internally audit and understand assessment results. The audit process builds a shared understanding and intersectional analysis of systemic oppression in the United States and its institutions.

Crossroads works with partner organizations to:

  • Assess – quantitatively and qualitatively – how an organization’s programs, products, services, constituent relationships, organizational structure, policies, and its history create and maintain a culture where systemic racism thrives despite its stated commitments to inclusion; 
  • Identify and recommend changes to an organization’s culture and structures that will set-it on a path to become a fully inclusive, multicultural and antiracist institution.

 

The audit process takes 9 to 12 months.
