INCREASING THE CAPACITY OF WHITES TO PARTNER TO CREATE MEANINGFUL CHANGE

Too often well-intentioned white people (friends and family, teachers/faculty, administrators, parents, activists, and community leaders) engage in conversations about and across racial identities in ways that perpetuate and model racist dynamics among their colleagues and those they serve. Whether through conscious and/or unconscious actions, many whites react in conflict situations with people of color in ways that undermine effective understanding, teamwork, and productivity.

In this highly interactive, reflective session participants will:
identify the types of behaviors and attitudes of whites during interactions and conflicts that maintain the racial/racist status quo in their organizations and communities
explore more effective strategies to engage during conflicts about race and/or with people of color
identify tools to navigate conflicts with a Race Lens

Participants will receive access to a packet of practical handouts and tools they can use in their ongoing interactions, as well as Kathy Obear’s book, But I'm Not Racist: Tools for Well-Meaning Whites.

Meet the Facilitators:
Kathy Obear from The Center for Transformation
Beth Yohe from The Conflict Center

Sponsored by: Conflict Resolution Month in October and Temple Emanuel
