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. Following the sessions, participants will put into practice what they are learning and connect action to personal experience, including their work environment and relationships.
In this training 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

“The interactive and welcoming nature of the training and the presenter were so important for this workshop focused on challenging material. The presenter was a connector and encouraged us all to connect with each other. There was homework and a focus on intentionality and practice - not just being a back of the room observer, which was crucial.”
