WP @PoCC 2016 copy

Online 

Following a preparation video that builds a graphic map of the groups people belong and have belonged to because of social locations and roles throughout US history, participants will explore with Debby the social beliefs, attitudes, and dynamics that can perpetuate patterns of power and privilege. Understanding that the more versed we become in the ways of whiteness, the more able we are to set our individual and institutional intentions to actively counter it. This workshop offers a reframing of DEI work to shift current power and privilege dynamics to equitable shared problem solving, envisioning, and co-creating. Participants will leave with powerful tools to analyze power dynamics and cultivate transformative cultures in their circles of influence. This workshop is highly interactive and works for groups as small as 10 and as large as 300, as well as those new to the topic and those deeply versed in it.  Requirements: Previous participation in I’m a Good Person! Isn’t that Enough? plus 30 minutes of video homework.
