8:30 am – 12:00 pm
This webinar explores the ways in which systemic racism informs our personal identity, behaviors and outcomes. We will develop a sociological understanding of the concepts colorblindness, colorism, cultural appropriation, unconscious bias, micro-aggressions, white fragility, and white privilege.
This is part of a series designed to introduce participants to foundational information necessary to understand the historic creation, preservation, and personal and institutional effects, of a society built upon ideas of racial difference whose purpose is to support the implementation of a racially based hierarchy. Introduction to Systemic Racism is the foundational workshop and is required before taking the remaining workshops.
