What's White Got to Do with It: Disrupting Race-based Inequities in Well-Intentioned Nonprofits: Part 1
May 22, 2019 - 12:00 - 1:30 p.m.
During our time, participants will explore the concept of whiteness by way of the socio-political and historical contexts by which whiteness, and therefore the white dominant culture by which most nonprofits operate, was constructed and has been upheld through policy, legal decisions, and Eurocentric cultural values. Participants will first have an opportunity to explore key moments in United States history that established whiteness as the default, the norm, and the supreme culture before highlight the relationship between this history and how it manifests in our organizational cultures, practices, and policies. Participants will have a chance to briefly explore their own role as gatekeepers within their institutions and how they might be disruptive of race-based inequity by leveraging their own individual and collective power.
May 30, 2019 - 10:00-11:00 a.m.

What's White Got to Do with It: Disrupting Race-based Inequities in Well-Intentioned Nonprofits: Part 2
June 5, 2019 - 12:00 - 1:30 p.m.
During our time on the subsequent call, participants will have the opportunity to take a "deeper dive" in exploring more intimately the extent to which white dominant cultural tendencies have been internalized and operationalized within organizations and the role that gatekeepers have in perpetuating or disrupting patterns of exclusionary and non-inclusive practices and policies. The primary focus during this call will be to explore tactics for institutional organizing to galvanize others on your team or in your organization to prioritize bringing an intersectional racial equity lens to their work and to the overall culture of the organization.
Registration for each webinar closes at 12:00 noon the day before the scheduled webinar.
