Fee: $115 for MCN members / $165 for nonmembers
During this highly interactive multi-part training, participants will collectively look at how to break the cycle of white supremacy and take practical and sustained action towards equity. Participants will dig deep into how white supremacy shows up in people, organizations, systems, and self. In between sessions, participants will put into practice what they are learning and connect action to personal experience, including their work environment and relationships.

In this series registrants will:
  • Identify what white supremacy culture is and how it shows up personally and professionally
  • Reframe harmful narrative around equity
  • Learn about habit change and why it is important in this work
  • Understand your power and influence in a system
  • Cultivate practical action
  • Build community with other nonprofit leaders
  • Get energized to reduce burnout and fatigue on your equity journey
