Class description: Even when we are doing good work in our nonprofits, oppressive and exclusionary practices can exist. This six-hour advanced-level equity course will build on the foundational principles and concepts of Exploring Equity 101, in which participants gain an understanding of unconscious and implicit bias, personal identity, and systemic racism.
In this brave space, participants will deepen their understanding of the common mechanisms perpetuating white supremacy culture in nonprofit organizations, systems, policies, and practices. This workshop aims to develop a critical thinking practice to institutionalize equitable practices within our organizations. Workshop participants will be challenged to intentionally and creatively operate in a manner that interrupts systemic oppression in and throughout their organization. Get ready for honest dialogue, active listening, courageous conversations, and participatory change. This class is taught by Danae Aicher.
