This session will explore outcomes of racism often conveyed through covert forms of oppression such as biases and microaggressions and will prepare participants to begin to unpack the ways in which our intersectionality is both a barrier and a crucial factor in becoming anti-racist in professional and personal settings. Racial Equity 103 (Mar. 30) closes out the racial justice program by guiding participants through an experience that highlights decision-making and a commitment to anti-racism within their homes, communities, and/or workplaces. Participants will understand the ways that intersectionality includes not only social identities but the relationships that we hold with others. $25 per workshop.
