This workshop series is designed to increase awareness of the visible and invisible ways race and racism appear in our lives and social and structural systems, especially in educational institutions. Along with digging into race and racism, the series also delves into various forms of resistance and how to commit to anti-racism in personal and professional environments.
In part one, workshop participants explore the concepts of race and racism, focusing on how race was historically constructed and enforced through different systems. Along with unpacking the history of race and racism, participants will reflect on their own racial identity and increase their awareness of the role racism has played in their lives.
This workshop is designed to help participants understand how the history of race and racism in the United States plays out in our current institutions, systems, and lives by:
- Increasing our knowledge of the history of how race was constructed in the U.S.
- Developing a better understanding of structural and systemic/institutional racism
- Understanding key terms related to different forms of racism
- Reflecting on one’s race, racialized experiences, and contributions to systems of racism
This workshop is open to staff and faculty.
