Addressing Whiteness: The Key to Advancing Racial Equity
May 18 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Join us for this enlightening workshop, including the following topics: de-centering whiteness, equity as power-sharing, and white fragility tools.
As political and social tensions rise across the country, institutional leaders have turned toward the vital work of racial equity to support fair policy and engagement practices. In this workshop, we invite participants to dismantle the ways that whiteness operates to block the processes and outcomes of racial equity. Addressing Whiteness examines “whiteness,” and the ways hierarchies of whiteness operate, intentionally and unintentionally, in institutional, organizational and personal spaces which prohibit racial equity. We provide tools to move beyond diversity and inclusion to think of equity as a form of radical power-sharing. We understand the difficulty and sensitivity of this topic, and encourage challenging conversations as a pillar of leadership.
This workshop is open to everyone, but designed for white folks to learn to dismantle their own privilege.
