About this event

This workshop is now sold out but you may join our waiting list. This workshop will be offered again October 28th & 29th. Stay tuned! Registration will open soon.

As we work in multicultural partnerships, it is beneficial to examine the unique dynamics of our socialization around gender and race. While white women face experiences of gender oppression, we also benefit from white privilege. In what ways do these two phenomena work together to create misunderstandings, missed collaborations, and acts of supremacy?

In this 2-day workshop (July 8th-9th, 2021) we use a model to examine how our identities develop as we grow in our understanding of personal and institutional oppression. Given the virtual platform, we will still use highly interactive methods including reflective writing, video clips, small group conversations, and storytelling, in order to take a deeper look into learned patterns of behavior.

Recognizing these patterns helps us name and practice strategies to better collaborate in multicultural settings. During our time together we will co-create a community where our spirits are renewed and our commitment to social justice is strengthened.​

Participants will…

  • Analyze the complex intersection of internalized sexism and white privilege and how this plays out in our lives
  • Learn and apply a model of white women’s anti-racist identity development
  • Share strategies to heal ourselves and counter racist and sexist socialization in order to improve our cross-cultural relationships and better advocate for systems of change

Facilitators: Ilsa Govan, M.A. & Tilman Smith

Location: Virtual. The Zoom link will be emailed to participants.

Schedule: 9:00am-12:30pm both days
