Tues, Feb 18th, 3 PM
In order to effectively disrupt workplace racism, we must first be able to identify it. Often, folks with more privileged identities struggle to recognize the ways that whiteness and racism permeate office culture and how they contribute to it. Participants will 1) engage in dialogue around topics of identity, inclusion, and whiteness in order to build a foundational vocabulary and familiarity with topics 2) practice meaningful self-reflection, on both individual and organization levels, in order to recognize how they fit within systems of racism and oppression 3) leave with tangible tools and strategies for identifying and disrupting microaggressions in order to foster more inclusive campus environments.
