Increase your equity awareness individually and as an organization!
Have you been hearing about implicit bias and intersectionality? Do they sound like buzz words and jargon? But does your passion for racial (along with class, gender, dis/ability, and sexual orientation, age) equity make you want to dig deeper?
This interactive workshop offers the opportunity to transform the fuzzy theoretical concepts of implicit bias and intersectionality into concrete individual and organizational practice ideas. The specific content of this session focuses on race, with exercises and ideas to take back with you that can be applied to other aspects of identity (class, gender, dis/ability, sexual orientation, age) .
Participants with all levels of understanding are welcome, and this workshop is most useful to participants who already have a basic understanding of cultural awareness/ competence, equity, privilege, power, racism, classism, etc. Participants leave the session with resources and concrete ideas to practice.
- Build relationships and a community where you can practice developing your racial equity skills
- Gain a common understanding of implicit bias and intersectionality
- Notice how inequities/biases based on racial (class, dis/ability, etc.) identity show up (unintentionally) in our individual actions & organizations
- Identify what we can do as individuals and as an organization to work towards creating racial equity in our actions
