In this session, we will provide a framework for understanding systemic racism and provide opportunities to use this framework as a lense to apply it to our own lives, our work, and our communities.
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
- Open to all students, staff, and faculty
