WE'RE ELIMINATING RACISM
with our Racial Equity & Inclusion training
WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR WORKSHOP
Held from 9 AM to 5 PM (Eastern time) on two consecutive weekdays, currently via Zoom, each Racial Equity & Inclusion workshop is led by Racial Equity Institute facilitators and has been designed to help you proactively understand and address racism in your community, workplace, and personal life. The Racial Equity Institute is nationally recognized for helping communities address institutional racism.
Our REI trainings now include the REI Debrief, a session one week after the workshops where together we'll discuss next steps for participants.
Our two-day REI Phase I training is designed to develop the capacity of participants to better understand racism in its institutional and structural forms. Moving away from a focus on personal bigotry and bias, this workshop presents a historical, cultural, and structural analysis of racism.
Topics covered include our fish/lake/groundwater analysis of structural racism; understanding and controlling implicit bias; race, poverty, and place; markedness theory; institutional power arrangements and power brokers; importance of definitions of race and racism; history and legacy of race in American economic and policy development; and racial identity and its interaction with institutional culture.
With shared language and a clearer understanding of how institutions and systems are producing unjust and inequitable outcomes, participants should leave the training better equipped to begin to work for change.
Once you've attended a Racial Equity & Inclusion Phase I workshop, you can attend a Phase I workshop a second time at no charge. We find that many participants need time to digest and fully integrate all they've learned, and attending a second Phase I workshop can be helpful in doing so.
If you would like to attend REI Phase I a second time, please contact Tori Burke-Koskela for a coupon code to use. This will allow you to register without paying.
