Description

How do organizations make the shift from fostering a culture of inclusion to developing policies, practices and processes that embed racial justice and equity in their values and their operations? It involves a commitment and investment in having, oftentimes, hard conversations about bias, privilege and equity and developing the skills to facilitate dialogue about the opportunities for change. This workshop invites leaders to develop practices that transform organizations into partners with the communities in which they work and serve and aligned their internal practices around racial justice and equity with their outwardly stated mission and goals.


Learning objectives:

  • Understand the role of equity and racial justice as core values of inclusion
  • Learn to reflect on past history and recognize how our history impacts our present
  • Develop skills to put into practice the internal strategies that build equity
  • How micro aggressions have macro-impact
  • Learn how to create space to have courageous conversations about race and implicit bias even when they get hard and how to encourage people to continue to be at the table


Discussion:

  • What commitment and leadership looks like throughout this long process
  • Developing awareness about white dominant cultural norms and bias against people of color
  • Understanding micro-aggressions
  • Differentiating between diversity, inclusion and equity
  • Understanding power and privilege
  • Defining institutional racism and its manifestations within an organization
  • What creates a safe space for courageous and difficult conversations about race
  • Allowing for the co-creation of ideas
