Race Equity Culture™ Virtual Partner Training with The BIPOC Project
“For Colored Folks Who Consider Their Mutual Liberation Enough”
This session is for organizational leaders of color seeking to disrupt the ways white supremacy shows up within organizations/communities.
“It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences.” – audre lorde
This webinar led by The BIPOC Project aims to disrupt the ways white supremacy shows up in communities of color. Through interactive exercises, dialogue and practice, we will share a multi-racial framework for building authentic solidarity among Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC).
A key learning objective of this training is for you to be more equipped to demonstrate anti-racism, advancing race equity by actively dismantling white supremacy and anti-blackness within teams, organizations and communities.
We will identify ways to build BIPOC solidarity and anti-racism, examine cultural and historical disconnections that impede authentic relationships, and highlight strategies to be accountable to one another in the work to build anti-racist organizations and communities.
As a result of participation in this session, you will:
- Reflect on our personal and institutional entry points and challenges to anti-racist organizing in BIPOC spaces (including BIPOC spaces we may hold within predominately white organizations)
- Understand how to de-center white people to enable BIPOC to unearth how internalized white supremacy, Native invisibility and anti-Blackness impede our efforts to collaborate across difference
- Intentionally reframe the black/white binary to cultivate an anti-racist frame and practice to disrupt current paradigms for racial justice work in organizations and communities
- Name and begin to disrupt dynamics of power that shape differences within and across communities of color, centering the diversity and intersectionality of BIPOC experience
- Explore strategies to build inter-group BIPOC relationships to facilitate more effective organizing in teams, organizations, and movements
Please note that this workshop is only for individuals who identify as people of color (Indigenous, Black, Latinx, Asian/Pacific Islander, Native Hawaiian, Arab/Middle Eastern, biracial, multiracial, and others identifying as non-white).
