Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation (TRHT) Efforts: Key Learning and Insights from Communities and Partners — 2023

September 1, 2023

Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation ™ (TRHT) is a comprehensive, multi-year national and community-based process to bring about transformational and sustainable change. Through TRHT, the Foundation (WKKF) partners with and supports local efforts to address the historic and contemporary effects of racism in communities and institutions. They work to replace the deeply held belief system that fuels racism with one that sees the inherent value of all people. TRHT communities engage in narrative change, racial healing and relationship building as part of an approach that undergirds efforts to transform society through the dismantling of institutional racism by specifically addressing separation, law, and the economy. WKKF engaged over 170 national partners in 2015 and 2016 and, with them, developed and piloted the TRHT framework and process. The following year WKKF provided grants to plan and implement TRHT to fourteen communities across the country. Each community determined its priorities and course of action in implementing the TRHT framework. This resource shares key insights and learnings from the experiences and ongoing work of those communities.

HR Toolkit for Racial Equity

May 22, 2023

HR Toolkit for Racial EquityThe W.K. Kellogg Foundation's (WKKF) organizational commitment to advancing racial equity, diversity and inclusion has been a multi-decade journey. One area of significant progress is in our human resources (HR) policies and practices. Over the years, leaders and organizations have sought out our HR team to ask about our internal strategies – what we've tried, what we've learned and what actions we are taking as a result of our commitments. WKKF created this toolkit to share our experiences, lessons and recommended tools and resources for implementing racial equity strategies as part of a human resources function. The toolkit complements the foundation's "ONE Journey" publication, which shares the foundation's larger racial equity, diversity and inclusion (REDI) efforts more fully.

Sustaining DEI momentum after the Supreme Court's decision on affirmative action

October 6, 2023

After the recent SCOTUS decision on affirmative action in higher education, leaders and organizations are grappling with the potential ripple effects on corporate diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) efforts in the near and long term. In navigating this moment, leaders can do two things: (1) reground themselves on why their organization is investing in DEI strategies in the first place, and (2) take a look at existing DEI initiatives to understand where they may evolve and continue to create equal opportunities for all. Assessing risk will no doubt be part of the conversation. Yet, with the strong business case for DEI efforts, how can organizations ensure the risks of discontinuing certain DEI efforts are given the same weight as the risks of continuing them? This how-to guide, created through the W.K. Kellogg Foundation's Expanding Equity program, provides a framework for what to consider while charting a path forward as you review and adapt your DEI strategies — all while remaining true to your aspirations for creating more diverse, equitable and inclusive workplaces.
