Microaggressions: Intent vs. Impact Workshop
Apr 29 @ 2:00 pm – 4:30 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.

What is White Supremacy Culture? Workshop
May 19 @ 9:30 am – 12:00 pm

Because these ideas have been maintained over a long period of time, it is sometimes hard for people to notice that this culture is based in whiteness. What are the characteristic of white supremacy culture – and what do we do once we’ve recognized this?
