Come join us for a workshop to learn tactics for finding your way through racism at work. Whether it’s overt or covert- we will start by identifying the impacts and challenges of your organization's whiteness and white supremacy culture.
Our work will be anchored in Community-Centric Principles. Using examples from development work, this workshop is for any BIPOC nonprofit worker who is interested in finding community, skills for organizational accountability and language for addressing problematic whiteness.
Together we will discover the ways that BIPOC folks can strategize for the harmful tenants of white supremacy culture. We will name white nonsense like gatekeeping, power hoarding, tone policing and more.
Michelle will share her expertise in CCF principles and best practices for transforming your organizations fundraising practices and culture.
Fleur will attempt to decode 'white lady' speak and offer insights when calling white folks forward and requesting accountability and integrity of them.
This will be a space to bring your anger, upset, pain and your laughter, joy, side eyes (!) and humor. Our hope is that folks leave filled up with connection and ease.
No refunds are given after registration. If there is another series, people can transfer to that one if they can no longer attend this one.
