8:30am Check-in & light breakfast
This workshop will teach you how to facilitate some of our favorite and most effective activities to move participants in their understanding of racism, the impact of stereotypes, and awareness of institutional privilege. Activities you'll learn to guide include simulations, small and large group discussions, use of images, stories, videos, and other participatory exercises. While you engage in hands-on exercises, we’ll model and walk you through strategies we’ve used to help deepen the conversation and allow participants to construct new knowledge.
Both experienced and novice trainers will learn new activities and skills. However, participants in this workshop should have awareness of your own biases, privileges and internalized oppression, as well as knowledge of institutional racism and white privilege in the United States. The more personal work you have done to understand these issues, the more you will get out of this workshop as a facilitator.
All participants will receive a set of Norm Cards and a free copy of our Activities Flash Drive, complete with step-by-step lesson plans, PowerPoint presentations, articles, poems, handouts, evaluation forms, and more!
- Learn to facilitate activities that invite people into new understandings of racism, privilege and power.

How is this different from our Train the Trainer workshop?
The Activities workshop is a great follow-up if you've already taken the Train the Trainer session, although you don't have to take that session first. The Activities workshop walks you through the instructions for simulations, prompts, games and other activities--all of which are on the Flash Drive you'll receive. In contrast, the focus of the Train the Trainer workshop is on facilitation strategies that can be used in any group conversation, regardless of the activity.
