Dismantling Racism: A Dialogue III
July 2 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Grab your lunch and join CORRAL in a safe place for conversation regarding the events that have unfolded these past few weeks and achieving racial equity in our community.
This week’s host is Rob Shields, Executive Director of ReCity Network, a place created to help the underserved thrive while promoting efficiency, innovation, collaboration, and inspiration among hardworking organizations in the Durham community. Rob brings a decade of experience in non-profit management and service, with a focus on youth development. After serving in nonprofit leadership for nearly five years, Rob joined the visioning team for ReCity Network in 2014, becoming the organization’s founding executive director.
Observing deep divisions in Triangle communities along lines of race, class, and opportunity, Rob was motivated to create a network of nonprofits, mission-driven businesses, and faith-based organizations that could collaborate to address the most challenging issues facing our communities. By bringing together dozens of organizations since ReCity’s 2016 launch, Rob has helped build a social impact hub, responding to demand for a more expansive mission of shared space and shared impact for the hundreds of nonprofits that call Durham home.
