“Anti-racism is a journey not a destination” – Ibram X. Kendi. Exploring anti-racism as a process and practice is a journey through understanding our personal experiences throughout our lives and the institutions we work within. By starting with ourselves as individuals, we can take intentional steps to identify experiences and systems that impact our role in dismantling racism. By examining white supremacy as the root of racist structures and practices, we can push this discourse even further, challenging the way we have been socialized and professionalized to maintain the status quo. For some practitioners, talking about race is a regular part of daily life and family discussions growing up. As a matter of survival, it’s never been an option not to. For others, it can be challenging to talk about it, or to know how to, and thus is often avoided or considered taboo, particularly in professional spaces. Wherever you are on this journey, this workshop will allow space for learning, personal sharing, processing and making practical application directly to your personal and professional lives.
