Capstone Highlights

Racial constructs have long impacted our culture – what can we do about it? In this session we will unpack a three-part framework that describes the journeys we walk to disentangle ourselves from institutionalized racism. This work requires knowledge of oneself, ability to recognize and name internalized and systematized oppression, and the courageous work to engage across cultural differences to experiment with equity and inclusion in organizations and relationships. We will combine participant story-telling with a research-backed framework to equip individuals and teams to predict and prepare for the challenges that emerge in anti-racism efforts, develop compassion for the struggle, and develop the resiliency required to persevere.
