As a lead up to the 9th Annual CSRB Conference“Confronting the Equity Gap: What’s Working and What’s Next” at Mills College on March 10, the purpose of this informal workshop is to lay a foundation for understanding whiteness as an identity in the context of racial equity.
In a non-judgemental space for reflection, observation and dialogue, the Mills Net Impact Chapter invites everyone, to further understand: whiteness as a cultural default, the invisibility of privilege and how the construction of whiteness has led to our system of inequity.
Light brunch will be provided.
