LEADING WHILE WHITE: COURAGEOUS CONVERSATION FOR ACTIVISM, FROM APPLICATION TO INTERRUPTION

Leading while White is and always has been the norm of order in the United States. What does it mean to be White and conceive, construct and perpetuate the dogma of white social, cultural, economic and spiritual supremacy? This essential question convenes this space of affinity for White racial equity leaders and organizers. Beginning with the consideration of individual Personal Racial Equity Purpose (PREP), this intensive 2-day institute will engage participants in continued racial consciousness development and collective problem solving at the personal, professional and organizational levels. Examining the essential question, we will utilize the Courageous Conversation Protocol to navigate the vision and work of systemic transformation for racial equity. We will seek to unpack such issues as, surfacing and confronting personal fears; identifying and interrupting Whiteness when it prevents working in authentic partnership with White people and people of color; balancing support and accountability for effectively calling in (or out) other White people; and examining humility to fortify courage. We will emerge from this seminar feeling a deeper level of confidence and courage to own our work of acting to end racism. (Prerequisite: Completion of Beyond Diversity II)
