Race Forward – A Training on Colors!

One of the most interesting trainings that I have attended so far was onsite training about Race equity and justice in the United States in specific and in the world in general.

The training was done by Race Forward, a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to “dismantle structural racial inequity and create equitable outcomes”.

In the training agenda, a lot of topics, activities and exercises were covered. After introductions about our names, roles, homes, identities and pronouns, we had an overview about racism in the US and how it was structured in the systems of the government where black people didn’t have a lot of rights, as well as other people of color.

What’s Inside Inside-NGO?

It has been almost 3 months since I started my new responsibility as an HR Officer with Heartland Alliance International, and luckily, I was selected to go with other group of the organization’s leaders to attend the Inside NGO conference that takes places every year in Washington DC. A lot of people didn’t know what this once-a-year conference is all about and why a Human Resources personnel in the NGO sector is going to such a conference. So here is some information about what’s inside “InsideNGO” conference.
