FIVE DAY EQUITY CHALLENGE 

AUGUST 31ST-SEPTEMBER 4TH

The Five Day Equity Challenge is designed to create dedicated time and space to build more effective social justice habits, particularly those dealing with issues of race, power, privilege, and leadership. The daily prompts will raise your awareness, change your understanding and shift the way you think and behave.

ABOUT THE FIVE DAY EQUITY CHALLENGE

  • You, along with thousands of others in Northern Michigan, commit to deepening your understanding of and willingness to confront racism, bias and other social inequities and register for the challenge using the below form.  ​

  • Participants will receive a daily challenge via email that invites them to explore a topic and choose an interactive activity such as reading an article, listening to a podcast, watching a video, reflecting on personal experiences and more.

  • The challenge will run for five consecutive days from August 31st-September 4th. If you fall behind or miss a day, the links you receive will stay live and we will post all five days on this page so you are able to catch up or revisit a topic at any time. 

  • Capture your personal reflections and track your progress using this activity log. 

  • Share your reflections and activities you find helpful on social media using #unitedforequity, #equitychampions, and #CRequitychallenge. Be sure to follow us on Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn @UnitedWayNWMI.
