RaceTalk Workshops & Panels
Anti-racism education for you and your organization begins here
Anti-racism education for you and your organization begins here.
Our unique RaceTalk Workshops are a transformative opportunity for participants to recognize and begin to dismantle racism and white supremacy within their organization, community, and broader systems as a whole.
This half-day program is the anchor in many of our anti-racism and racial literacy training and development programs. It can form the basis for ongoing training and broader curriculum development, or stand alone as a first step in improving cultural competence and racial literacy among participants.
Ending systemic racism and confronting one’s complicity in white supremacy begins with understanding the personal journeys of Black and Brown people.
This workshop and panel do just that.
RaceTalk Workshops Humanize the Racial Experience
A RaceTalk Workshop goes beyond traditional or corporatized diversity and equity training to humanize the racial experience. It is intended to delve deeper and more thoroughly than most existing programs that teach collegiality and “oneness,” and consists of:
2-3 hours of training
This training helps participants recognize, understand, and begin to dismantle the racist structures inherent in systems and communities of all kinds, with an emphasis on personal narrative and experience.
1 hour of panel presentation
Participants will hear from a panel of guests who have been trained to examine their own life through a critical race lens. This narrative element is central to empathizing with and understanding the personal journeys of people of color.
45 minutes-1 hour of Q&A
Dr. Simmons leads the audience and these trained panelists in an extensive Q&A on white supremacy and racial socialization based on common questions and misnomers among attendees. To achieve this effectively, she provides an opportunity for participants to submit anonymous questions in real-time.
