Racial Equity Tools Glossary

Racial Equity Tools has created a glossary of terms to create a shared understanding of words to enhance the way we talk about race.

Language is an essential tool in racial equity work, and the terms we use have evolved as this work has developed. Having a common language allows us to better engage, discuss, and reflect on these important issues together. Terms in the glossary include:

  • Implicit bias
  • Institutional racism
  • Microaggression
  • Restorative justice
