Microaggressions: Intent vs. Impact Workshop (virtual)
Jan 25 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

What are microaggressions? Can they hurt if they weren’t intended in a hurtful way? How do they impact our work environment? What are helpful responses when I see, commit, or have someone use one on me?

Participants in our Racial Equity Workshops develop a common vocabulary, so they can begin to use a “racial equity lens” as they analyze institutional racism.  Led by trained facilitators, the group develops skills necessary to address racism at personal, interpersonal and systemic levels.

Racial Healing Circle (virtual)
Jan 31 – Feb 21 all-day

Racial healing recognizes the need to acknowledge and tell the truth about past wrongs created by individual and systemic racism and address the present consequences. It is an experience and a tool that can facilitate trust and build authentic relationships that bridge divides created by real and perceived differences.

Truth, Racial Healing, & Transformation logoYWCA’s Equity Institute is grateful that many individuals and organizations in Evanston are interested in the work of racial healing. We know it is not the responsibility of one person, one group, or one organization to drive this work. The responsibility belongs to all of us to participate in these honest, powerful and moving experiences and, pursue this journey together.

Those who live, work or worship in Evanston are invited to register for a series of THREE Racial Healing Circles. The first two will happen in racial affinity groups and the third session will be mixed across racial groups. We are asking folks to register only if they can participate in all 3 sessions.
