Our workshops are designed to challenge and engage large or small groups in a brave space. We use the word brave deliberately because the topics are often uncomfortable. It’s that discomfort that has allowed the core issues to persist. This is where our expertise shines. We have designed 3 unique anti-racism workshops which we will tailor for your conference, business, or school.
A Research-Based Introduction
This 3-hour workshop can be done in-person or online. Participants are taught six categories of empirically-based anti-racism interventions and practices. They learn about institutional, cultural, and individual racism through the lens of critical justice theories.
Creating a Justice-Oriented Mindset
This two-day (14 hour), in-person, highly interactive workshop dives into racism, its real history, systemic effect on U.S. society and conditioning of U.S. citizens. Using empirically-based interventions and practices, various levels of reflection around racism will be examined such as institutional, cultural, and individual. By applying critical justice theories, Cultural Humility, and Social Learning Theory, participants will learn how racism has affected their lives and what they can do as individuals to confront racism and oppression. Through self-critique, small group interaction, large group discussion, video clips, and hands-on activities, participants will come away with a better view of what it means to be anti-racist and anti-oppressive.
An Extended Experience
This in-person, highly interactive workshop covers the same material as the "Unraveling Racism" workshop but it is accomplished once a month for a 6 or 12 month period. Research indicates that the effectiveness of interventions wanes over time if the participants are continually exposed to counterproductive measures from their environment and culture. Having sessions repeated and practiced over an extended period is more likely to sustain long-term changes.
