GRCC Workshop: Creating Cultures of Racial Equity - Foundations
Home » GRCC Workshop: Creating Cultures of Racial Equity - Foundations
In response to the country’s call to action for racial equity and justice, the Greater Ravenswood Chamber of Commerce has enlisted Morten Group to offer our neighborhood's small businesses an anti-racism workshop that provides them with the tools to start “the work”.
In this 2-hour workshop, we will:
Learn more about one another’s identities, experiences, and views to facilitate increased connection and trust which are necessary for successful race equity efforts.
Develop a deeper understanding of racism as being undergirded by histories and different levels and expressions of power and privilege that create and uphold racialized systems of power & oppression.
Work to create a shared understanding of SOME of the foundational concepts and terminology connected to race, racism, and race equity and examine how these show up in our lives and work.
Begin to explore how to move toward race equity across varying levels and will start to identify pathways to action within your organization.
Participation is free for GRCC members. A limited number of spots are available, so we encourage you register as soon as possible. Attendees will be asked to complete a brief Racial Equity Assessment Survey to help inform Morten Group as they tailor their workshop to our small business community.
