Event Description

Building Beloved Community Through Collective CouragePeople across the country are waking up to the reality that racism and oppression exist in very real ways. In order to truly make transformative and liberatory change, we must confront how we show up. We get the culture we create in the workplace and in our communities. It is all about intentionally building a truly equitable, welcoming, and inclusive business/ institution/ organization that goes beyond diversity. In this session, we will better understand how we can truly build equitable, just and liberation centered workplaces that create lasting impact and change in our communities and society. We will develop specific ways to champion anti-oppression within your organization on interpersonal and systemic levels. This interactive workshop will center the values of Beloved Community and offer real guidelines to assist in building a framework that shifts power structures and centers the reality that another world is possible.
