Becoming anti-racist is an ongoing process that involves a willingness to understand your role in systematic racism and actively speak out against it.

This workshop series guides participants toward action in three phases: Fear, Learn and Grow.

The journey begins with confronting the fear of saying and doing the wrong thing; relearning race and confronting how racism shows up in everyday life, our work, our play and our relationships; and committing to grow as an anti-racist. 

During this workshop, participants will learn about the social constructs of race, how it differs from ethnicity, and institutional racism. Participants will also gain knowledge, confidence and skills to analyze and challenge racism, biases and other inequities within their organizations and society.

Participant Takeaways: 

  • Understanding and overcoming fears regarding race

  • Learning about systemic racism, anti-Blackness, racial inequities and intersectionality

  • Practice skills to spread and create anti-racist ideas, and actively seek an anti-racist work environment

  • Personal commitment to grow as an equity broker

Total Time: 3 sessions; Session 1: 90 | Session 2 2hrs | Session 3: 90 min-2hrs min. workshop

 

PARTICIPANT FEEDBACK

Thank you for providing the guidance and encouragement to embrace these discussions with our friends, families, co-workers. I love a worksheet/workbook. :-) I find it helps me to write things down and re-visit those thoughts.

It was very insightful and made me think about how I, as a black woman, think about and handle racial issues.

I appreciate the idea of learning sit in discomfort and taking action rather than doing nothing.
