In this workshop, we will unpack the social construct of race, the historical experience of race in America, and the impact of racial micro-aggressions. And while we understand that while race is a social construct and is not based on scientific or biological fact, this “imaginary status” has very real consequences. In this data-driven workshop, we explain that in this day and time it is not enough to not be racist, you have to be actively anti-racist. We give participants the skills needed to identify and reframe racist ideologies as well as specific guidance on how to correct the behavior that perpetuates racial stereotypes. We provide real-world examples of the impact of microaggressions and how to respond if you are the person who said something, thought you said something, are on the receiving end of a microaggression, and how to be an active ally if you see something being said.
- Understand the terminology of anti-racism, the history of the racial experience in the United States, key demographics, and work to understand the importance of racial diversity and the impact of inclusion.
- Develop awareness of racial differences, anti-racist practices, and how microaggressions perpetuate racial ideologies and practices.
- Learn the language of equity and inclusion to move beyond assumptions and become a truly anti-racist active ally.
