TBA in early 2019
This workshop is for white people who wish to do the inner work required to confront racism in the workplace and in ourselves. Through restorative justice practices, we will engage in self-reflection, dialogue, and group activities to explore how our socialization as white people affects our behaviors and beliefs, how this shows up in the workplace, and what's needed for better communication and relationships across lines of difference.
Topics will include:
Working through Racial Anxiety
Understanding and Addressing Implicit Bias
Restorative Inquiry For Difficult Conversations
Bystander Intervention Strategies
Micro-aggressions and Stereotype Threat
