Training is limited to 50 attendees.
a. Power Dynamics, Race and Culture
b. Implicit Bias and its effects
c. Microaggressions: labelling, interrupting and defining
d. Inclusive Practice – pragmatic answers to organizational issues.
Each section will go down to specific topics, like implicit bias, cultural frameworks, perceived microaggressions, tokenism, colorism, and other manifestations of structural power dynamics that play out daily in our workplace with co-workers and when working with community members. It outlines the specific dynamics that occur in non-profit and other spaces, and the last section addresses questions raised about practice. We will reflect on strategies currently used in organizations to create a more inclusive and collaborative environment for marginalized identities. This training discusses issues and terminology rarely addressed elsewhere.
We may address aspects such as accessibility and collaborative partnerships that are culturally appropriate, instead of traditional outreach models. In advanced versions of this training, we will detail how to make a responsive Organizational Equity Plan for your program.
