Virtual Racial Equity Cohort Learning Series

The Equity Paradigm will host a virtual racial equity series designed for a group of cross-sector participants to deepen understanding, conviction, and accountability around racial equity. This cohort will feature three facilitated sessions, each with a specific focus that builds on the prior session's learning. For organizations that have new employees, this is a great opportunity to help your new employees better lean into your organizational equity pursuits by building a foundational understanding of racial equity principles.

Session 1: Foundations in Racial Equity
Focused on building social, political, historical, and economic context around the construction of race. This workshop will help participants build a systemic, institutional and cultural analysis of racialized outcomes, all through the lens of our own racial identities, experiences and encounters. This introductory workshop is a strongly recommended prerequisite for our other workshops.

Session 2: Foundations in Internalized Racism
Pushes participants to examine their own socialization and the unconscious norms, assumptions and biases that have been ingrained in us, that perpetuate racism and uphold the system has it was designed. We will interrogate our own lived experiences and identities, build community and devise strategies for deconstructing Internalized Racial Superiority and Internalized Racial Oppression through racial identity caucusing, all while building our capacity to work towards racial equity in the spaces we occupy.

Session 3: Understanding & Decentering White Supremacy Culture
Focuses on naming, interrogating, and challenging white supremacy as a socio-political system of domination that, while rendered invisible, controls all facets of what is deemed "normal" and "correct" in our society and in our workplaces, more specifically. Using a racial equity lens developed in sessions 1 and 2, we will define the attributes of whites supremacy culture, identify our roles as perpetrators/co-conspirators in upholding white supremacy culture as the "norm" in our environments, and begin developing strategies for decentering white supremacy culture and creating space for alternative ways of being and operating.
