Dialogue: Racism

Event Details


Through facilitated dialogue, reflection and role-playing, this intensive two-day workshop challenges participants to analyze the structures of power and privilege that impact communities of color.

Participants will:

  • Develop a common definition of racism and an understanding of its different forms: individual, institutional, linguistic, and cultural,
  • Understand one’s own connection to institutional racism and its impact on his/her work,
  • Understand the role and impact of institutions, particularly as they relate to people and communities of color,
  • Understand racial superiority/inferiority, and
  • Develop a framework for understanding white privilege.

Lunch will be provided on both days, but participants will be responsible for securing their own lodging.
