Co-Sponsored by Staff Association and People & Workplace Culture
A series of four anti-racism workshops will be offered to those members of the SLCC community who identify
as White, however, employees of all racial and ethnic groups are welcome to attend. The intention of these
workshops is to co-create a brave space where participants do the often hard work of examining our own
racism and White privilege and committing to anti-racist actions. We begin our work with the awareness that
we are all living in a racist culture and participate, often unconsciously, in racist actions. Participants will be
asked to register for and commit to attending all four workshops to build community. Each workshop will be
interactive starting with a check in, a short didactic segment related to the readings, an experiential learning
segment, and a check out.
Participants must register for all four workshops - CB12, CB13, CB14 and CB15
