Session 3: Moving Toward An Anti-Racist Workplace

Includes a Live Event on 10/26/2021 at 6:00 PM (PDT)

Session Description:

While systemic racism has been part of American life for over 400 years, recent events have broadened awareness and heightened the urgency for change. More than an absence of discrimination, active anti-racism work is being demanded of us all. In this session we will be addressing what an anti-racist workplace can look like and the changes needed to achieve this, as well as what each of us can do, from our unique positions, to support and lead the change.

    • Participants will understand the essential aspects of anti-racism work, why it is necessary, and ways to promote it in the workplace.
