Event description

Description

YWCA Lancaster presents this one-and-a-half day workshop in conjunction with the nationally recognized Washington Consulting Group.

Are you tired of diversity programs and committees and task forces that collect data and do nothing with it? Do you feel like you're spinning your wheels and can’t get any traction? This session will help you assess where your organization and community get stuck and what steps are needed to move beyond traditional diversity programs and toward institutional and culture change.

This training is for those with prior background in anti-oppression training. People who have attended YWCA Lancaster's Racial Justice Institute, study circles, or similar training with other organizations, are perfect candidates for this workshop. It is not a beginning level session.

First-day topics and activities include a short review of key concepts and personal race stories. The dynamics of oppression in community context will be explored, and we will begin to create public narratives for change. On the second day, action plans are devised that bridge public narratives to concrete civic engagement work. This is where change begins.

The training is limited to 35 participants and will be held from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Dec. 14, and 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. (noon) on the 15th, with lunch being served on the 14th. This dynamic workshop will be held at the YWCA Lancaster, located at 110 N. Lime St. in Lancaster City; cost is $100 per person.
