D&I Taskforce Learning Session: How to be Anti-Racist: Institutional and Structural Racism

June 9, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Talking candidly about race can be daunting, but we recognize that doing so is necessary to further social change. You are invited to a judgement-free conversation about racism and what it looks like to journey/transform from being non-racist to anti-racist. Prior to our learning group, we ask that you digest a few resources before joining your peers in a facilitated discussion. Together, we will explore actionable steps to enhance intercultural competence and fight systemic oppression in a meaningful way. Our goal is to learn from each other and grow together.

Materials to check out before the conversation:

Mandatory activity (10 minutes): Project Implicit / Harvard (You are NOT going to be asked to share results, this is just so you can get to know yourself better!)

Choose at least one of the options below:

Short Article (6 minutes): Is Your Company Actually Fighting Racism, or Just Talking About It?

Social Media Thread (3 minutes): Types of Racial Microaggressions

Videos (18 minutes): Decoded / Franchesca Ramsey
