Racial Healing Circle (virtual)
Aug 12 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Truth, Racial Healing, & Transformation logoRacial healing is an experience and a tool that can facilitate trust and build authentic relationships that bridge divides created by real and perceived differences.

This session includes both group interactions and intimate conversations between two participants. Trained Racial Healing Circle practitioners will be present to help ensure a confidential, safe space for participants to have truthful conversations with one another. 

We ask that you register ONLY if you can attend the complete session. We typically try to create circles with as much racial, gender, age, and ethnic diversity as possible, but also can offer circles composed completely of participants who identify as White or all participants who identify as People of Color. If you have a preference, please indicate that on the registration form.

Equity Workshop: Developing Cultural Humility (virtual)
Aug 26 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

What does it mean to develop cultural humility?  We’ll explore how an organization can become inclusive and understanding of a variety of cultures, races, abilities, and differences, and identify changes that can be made by organizations and by individuals to transform the climate.

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.
