Times are changing and being aware of and taking action towards promoting anti-racism practices will be what makes a difference in the success of future businesses and organizations. Leaders are juggling lots of issues but putting first a company or team's culture is critical for success and meaningful work.
In this course, we will delve deeper into the topic of equity and access and unpacking the terms around anti-racism and decolonization. We will use Randall Lindsey et al's work around Cultural Proficiency to better understand our own roles in our groups to promote a more just and inclusive culture that supports everyone from a core understanding of equality and humanity.
Session 1 will focus on unpacking key terms, breaking down some of the headlines, and considering the different perspectives/ roles media plays.
In session 2 we will build our own understanding of our identity, our role, and sphere of influence. Between sessions 2 and 3 you will be asked to observe your setting and begin to identify actions that are impacting an inclusive culture.
In session 3 we will unpack the observations of the group and identify ways to take action in a positive, anti-racist approach.
To be successful in this course participants need to be willing to be open and willing to confront their own bias. The goal of the course is for participants to have a heighten sense of awareness and tools to build a positive, inclusive culture.
