[DEI Training Series] Social Justice in Action:  Addressing Race Relations in 21st Century

[DEI Training Series] Social Justice in Action: Addressing Race Relations in 21st Century In-Person

In this program, participants learn a framework and common language for the four pillars of Social Justice. We explore what we all need to do to effectively engage across cultures and undo systems of oppression. This framework takes into account the importance of deepening awareness of self—moving from color blindness to racial cognizance; increasing knowledge of others and their experiences with systems of oppression; developing skills to effectively engage across cultures; and advocating and taking action to dismantle institutional racism and other forms of oppression.

Objectives: Participants will:

  1. Learn common language of key terms.
  2. Have a common understanding of the work we need to engaged effectively across cultures and undo systems of oppression.
  3. Begin to explore how they were socialized around race, racism, and race relations.
