Race Matters: Organizational Self-Assessment

By the Annie E. Casey Foundation

January 12, 2006


Unintended racial prejudices are deeply rooted in all U.S. institutions. Use this questionnaire to find out if they are part of your organization. The questions use a racial lens to size up staffing and operational aspects. The assessment then offers additional tools and next steps based on how the organization scores. This tool is part of a Race Matters toolkit. For more information visit the Race Matters Institute website.

Key Takeaway

Even if unintended, racial bias is still part of an underlying culture of inequality that must be addressed.

Embedded racial inequities are defined as accumulated advantages for whites and accumulated disadvantages for people of color.
