About Conversations on Race| A Virtual Six-Part Series
Eliminating racism is an ongoing process that involves a willingness to learn about, and begin, undoing, the adverse impact of racism on individuals, organizations, and communities.
In order to address racism, in all the places where we witness its oppressive power, we need people who understand it, can address it and challenge it.
We will end racism when more people, particularly white people, understand the importance of speaking up to address race issues as they occur.
The objectives for the conversations course are to:
- Gain knowledge of race, racism, racial inequities
- Build connections with each other to combat racism
- Grow your personal commitment to address racism
- History/Roots of Racism
- Manifestations of Racism
- On Whiteness
- Racial Implicit Bias
Each two-hour session will allow time for content review (video clips, reflection questions) along with listening pairs, breakout rooms and full group discussions.
