PROGRAM FAQs

LM’s REAL Inclusion Program examines the systemic beliefs, practices, and policies that have perpetuated racial inequities and situates that analysis within the context of organizational leadership.

This program is designed to provide organizations the awareness, skills and structures needed to identify and implement practices that lead to racially equitable outcomes. Through a structured and facilitated process, organizational teams develop an equity action plan that supports organizational change. REAL Inclusion was developed after the successful introduction of Racial Equity Workshops, led by the Racial Equity Institute. Leadership Montgomery is partnering with Montgomery College to offer the REAL Inclusion Program as a non-credit course.

To continue the implementation of the Leadership in Action initiative, LM is introducing this program to join its 5 existing programs.

This 8-month program incorporates a unique and structured dialogue process that begins with understanding the historical roots of racism and ends with examining best practices for operationalizing equity within organizations. At the end of the program, graduates will receive a certificate of completion (if all course requirements are met).

This program is for multiple organizations within or across sectors that have identified racial equity as a strategic priority. Organizational teams of 3-5 members that include staff from a range of levels (i.e. executive leadership, middle management & staff).

Upon completion of this course, participants and their organizations will be able to:

  • Build relationships and empathy across race, culture, and power divides
  • Normalize conversations around race and how it impacts an organization’s goals
  • Develop a vision for equity and create strategic messages to articulate the organization’s equity values and goal
  • Use frameworks to identify and examine decisions, practices, and policies that are barriers to equitable outcomes
  • Develop a racial equity action plan
  • Identify methods to evaluate success
