Equity Leaders:

A Workshop & Networking Opportunity for Those Leading Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Efforts

Date: July 28-29, 2020
Description:

Now, more than ever, strong equity leaders are needed to guide organizations towards a truly anti-racist culture. Unfortunately, many of these positions are newly created, and those hired are coming in without any clear direction. Equity leaders often feel isolated and can quickly become frustrated or feel overwhelmed. In times of mass uprisings such as what we’re currently seeing in the Movement for Black Lives, everyone may expect you to have simple, quick answers and all the while you are processing your own emotions around the events.

However, if we can come together to collaborate and learn from each other’s mistakes and successes, perhaps we can craft an easier path forward. As Paulo Freire said, “We make the road by walking.”

This workshop provides an opportunity for equity leaders to share strategies for organizational change, problem solve some of the challenges they face, and to network. Facilitators Caprice Hollins & Ilsa Govan will share a model of multicultural organizational development and strategies for change we’ve identified
over the past eleven years in our work with hundreds of organizations.

We’d love for you to be part of this community. Our goal is for participants to come away with new tools for this important work as well as supportive partnerships they can lean on for many years to come.
