Racial Equity Workshops
Participants in these YWCA Racial Equity Workshops develop the skills and vocabulary necessary to engage in honest reflection on their own identities, as well as on how systemic racism affects the lives of all who live and work in our communities. Trained facilitators lead participants to:
Pre-registration is required. Attend one or all three on Tuesdays 9:00 – 11:30am
How do the early messages we received impact the way we see our own and others’ racial identities? We'll work to recognize the ways implicit bias is shown through our words and actions allows us to start changing some old patterns.
How are power and privilege attained - and maintained - inequitably? We'll work together to identify ways they can be used to disrupt the status quo.
