ImpactTulsa & BEST launch Affinity Learning Cohorts led by oneTilt

 

ImpactTulsa, in partnership with the Birth through Eight Strategy for Tulsa (BEST), is thrilled to launch a new initiative with oneTilt, a company with a focus on supporting organizations to build inclusive teams and leaders, aimed at advancing racial equity and inclusive leadership. oneTilt, will facilitate six race-based affinity learning cohorts for ImpactTulsa and BEST partners frontline and executive leadership staff members in the 2020-2021 school year.

Affinity Learning Communities create an opportunity for individuals with a shared identity to gather and talk in a safe space about issues related to that identity and transfer that discussion into action, making for a more equitable experience for people in our workplaces and communities.
