Lessons in Connectedness, Racial Capitalism, Implicit Bias, and Colorism

Description



NOTE: Session PPT and handouts will not be available.

As the nation is currently facing challenges that are creating more darkness and divisiveness, our ability to engage in thoughtful and meaningful discourse on cultural issues remains ever present. Remembering our shared humanity and connectedness, in spite of our current challenges, has never been more paramount. This webinar addresses the impact of racial capitalism, racial colorblindness, implicit bias, and colorism on our (in)ability to create meaningful changes. It is hoped that attendees gain an understanding how to work towards more antiracist-intersectional practices, both personally and professionally.

By the end of this program, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify why cultural humility is essential in changing the nature by which we understand ourselves and others. 
  2. Identify at least two ways in which professionals can address their own implicit biases. 
  3. Explain the impact of racial capitalism in our nation's history, current challenges, and future. 
  4. Identify at least two ways to increase one’s antiracist and social justice work in their professional capacities.
