RACE EQUITY TRAININGS AND WORKSHOPS
Leadership Montgomery offers workshops and trainings to help leaders understand racism, along with a program to help address racism in an effort to work towards racial equity. We offer workshops for participants that are new to race equity and understanding racism; for participants who want to explore historical and structural examples of inequities to begin thinking about a plan for change; and for participants who want to explore power in the workplace. Finally, we offer the REAL (Race Equity Action Leadership) Inclusion program for those who are ready to develop a race equity action plan for organizational change within their workplace.

RACIAL EQUITY WORKSHOP
2 Days; 8:30 AM-5:00 PM both days
In the Racial Equity Workshops (REI), led by the Racial Equity Institute, LLC, 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.
