You cannot challenge something you don't know exists. At a basic level, our work involves helping individuals and organizations to create new lenses, moving from an individual understanding of racism, that is, prejudice and discrimination based on "race," to a systemic understanding. Moving from an individual lens to a systemic one has profound implications for how we understand ourselves, our relationships and our work. We begin to see and understand things we previously didn't know existed.
Discuss racism on an individual and systemic level
Raise awareness and understanding of systemic practices, culture and policies that support the privileged and halt the oppressed
Learn how to address these situations and deconstruct them
