EC // LUNCHTIME SERIES, Part 5: Identifying & Understanding Detours

IIDA NY Equity Council Lunchtime Series, in partnership with Racial Equity Partners (REP)

Part Five – Identifying & Understanding Detours

Conversations about racism are difficult. Holding a real conversation related to race typically requires some deep, personal reflection and a willingness to confront pretty challenging truths; whether about our history or about ourselves and the ways we’ve been conditioned. During these conversations, we often introduce ‘detours’ to assuage feelings of guilt or denial, distracting us from getting to the root of the discussion and preventing us from a fuller analysis and understanding of racism and its impacts.

Join us to learn about common detours so that we can identify and work against them – in our journey toward becoming antiracist.

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 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.

Moderated By:
