Event description

Description

Leading for Social Justice and Equity

Trainer: María Lisa Johnson

We live in a racialized society in which explicit and subtle patterns of inequity permeate our social, political and economic structures resulting in advantages for some groups, while disproportionately impacting others. As current and future leaders, we can benefit from a framework that equips us to analyze these structures in order to develop personal and organizational responses that further equity and justice.

As a participant in this session you will have the opportunity to:

  • Increase your awareness of the historical impacts of structural inequity

  • Deepen your understanding of dynamics of oppression, power and privilege within your organization or community group

  • Recognize implicit bias and learn strategies to manage your own biases

  • Apply an equity lens to assess organizational policies and practices and identify opportunities to achieve greater equity

  • Engage with peers to develop shared language and creating a supportive learning community
