Workshop Description
For the first time in decades, a large number of organizations have made a commitment to addressing racism in their practices. The instructor will address the following questions: What are the phases to becoming an anti-racist multicultural transformed institution? What areas of your organization need to be addressed and how will you get there? What are strategies for doing and maintaining this, even when those at the top and those on your team are not yet on board?   The instructor will describe how Anti-Blackness and the Model Minority Myth show up in institutions and outline the activities that are actually promoting belonging. This workshop offers a leadership and administrative focus but will appeal to anyone who is interested in moving their organization in the direction of anti-oppression work. 


Learning Objectives

After the completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Assess where their organizations lie in the continuum of becoming an anti-racist institution 
  • Evaluate the activities of an organization as it relates to belonging and inclusion
  • Analyze their own leadership and behaviors to align with anti-oppression
  • Describe their complicity in the oppression of an institution.

This workshop is approved for 1.5 continuing education credit hours.
