REAL Action: Advancing Racial Equity and Leadership in Town & Gown Relations

You asked, we listened. Back by popular demand, Keynoter Leon Andrews, National League of Cities’ Race, Equity And Leadership (REAL) director, will continue the conversation started in State College about race, equity and inclusion. It was so popular we are offering this to attendees at a reduced rate.


The NLC’s-REAL department has developed curriculum to guide participants toward an expanded understanding of racial equity and how it can impact our leadership and interactions. This full day training session will focus on equity and inclusion practices/ policies with a specific focus on leadership and community building to better support universities and municipalities.
