RACIAL EQUITY WORKSHOP
Foundational Training in Historical and Institutional Racism Summary:
In our contemporary society, racism shapes the outcomes of all institutions. It pits entrenched patterns of power against what are often faint images of equity. Yet even those who are concerned about growing achievement gaps, disparities in health and wealth, and the mass incarceration of black and brown people are challenged in their understanding of how racism remains alive and well in all our institutions, advantaging some while harming others.
This workshop helps participants become clear on how race and racism have been constructed in the US and how ideas about racism live in our unconscious minds and social structures even 50 years after the successes of the Civil Rights movement.
This workshop is important for people of color and white people who are committed to eliminating racism. It provides an analysis that helps participants gain clarity about how racism is organized and how to work to disrupt its powerful influence.
Expected Outcomes:
Participants gain an understanding of the imperative of eliminating racism
Participants have a better working knowledge of race and racism, its history and legacy today
Participants have a common language to assist in having more productive dialogue
Participants have an introduction to the ways they have internalized constructed oppression
Participants have knowledge and resources to continue learning
Agenda:
I. Persistent and Increasing Racial inequity: Why it Matters
II. Socialization, Implicit Bias, and Decision-Making
III. The Intersections of Race and Wealth, and Race and Poverty
IV. The Power Relationship between Institutions and Communities
V. The Role of Gatekeeping in Maintaining the Status Quo
VI. The Ongoing Construction of Race in America: Fallacies and Realities
VII. Common Definitions of Race and Racism: Clarifying Language
VIII. Affirmative Action: A History Lesson
IX. Documentary: “The House We Live In” (from Race: The Power of an Illusion)
X. How Internalized Racism Impacts Beliefs & Behaviors
XI. The Problem Solving Wheel: Moving from Awareness to Analysis to Action
