Cultural Humility & Belonging: Part III
Being An Active Ally
As we work to increase inclusion in our workspaces, we need more focus on actions that help build a genuine sense of belonging. If you’re working to be an ally, it is an active process and a key component is being able to speak up and interrupt harm (bias, microaggressions) that someone else may be receiving. What tools do we need to navigate the harm and show care for our colleagues? What holds us back from speaking up? Allies can model what we expect to see in our workspaces.
Join us to learn about and practice strategies to help “call people in” constructively. Let us “be the change” that we want to see.
As organizations work to advance racial equity and develop inclusive work environments, we know this work is deeply personal. This series will examine race and culture in America and the different ways people experience bias, preventing us from bringing our full self into most spaces. Share and hear about personal stories and learn about efforts being made to transform traditionally white spaces into culturally competent environments.
These bi-monthly, 90 minute lunchtime sessions will lead with a short presentation, leaving ample time for open conversation, interaction and questions. All sessions are free and open to the public.
