Convince Your Employer

Attending Facing Race is an investment in racial justice movement building, professional development, and networking. It can also be beneficial to your organization in deepening racial equity understanding and practice.

Convince Your Employer To Send You

We’ve put together a set of support materials that you can use to convince your employer to sponsor your registration fee so that you can attend Facing Race, which is going to be online this year!

In order to keep our communities safe, Facing Race 2020 is going virtual. This opens the doors to many opportunities for participating in Facing Race like:

Virtual Participation

Due to the ongoing pandemic, many of us are working from home to protect ourselves and our communities. Participating in a virtual conference allows you to enjoy the Facing Race experience from the comfort of your home.

Flexible Scheduling

This allows you to pick and choose what panels, breakout sessions, Race Flicks & other aspects of the conference you would like to participate in based on your work schedule and personal commitments.

Adjusted Registration Price

Going virtual means adjusting our registration prices for the virtual experience, making this must-attend event even more affordable for your employer to fund.
