A one-day seminar for women leaders in observation of Women’s History Month

Women leaders often face challenging barriers due to gender bias, societal norms, and traditions. Many have been, and continue to be, changemakers with noteworthy traits and abilities worthy of emulation. What are some of these traits? How did they acquire and develop them? What were some of the challenges they faced? What accounted for their eventual successes?
This workshop will explore the special qualities and experiences unique to women that they can deploy in the ongoing quest for social transformation. It will also explore how women can enhance their leadership and maximize opportunities to turn power and influence into impactful change.

2 Days; 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.both days

In the Racial Equity Workshops, led by the Racial Equity Institute, LLC (REI), participants interactively explore perspectives on race, racism, and racial and ethnic disparities. With a wealth of historical, economic, and other data, skilled facilitators from the Racial Equity Institute will foster thoughtful analysis and dialogue. Participants typically garner insights that are both profound and practical for understanding and choosing the roles we play when it comes to equity in America, our communities, and our organizations.

This two-day workshop 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. 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. Topics covered include the fish/lake/groundwater analysis of structural racism; understanding and controlling implicit bias; race, poverty, and place; markedness theory; institutional power arrangements and power brokers and more.
