Event description
This first offering of the Social Impact Institute's Racial Equity Framework engages nonprofit leaders in conversation about race.

About this Event

The Onion Dialogues, presented by Amy Owen and Tamara Copeland, provides nonprofit executives and Board members the opportunity to explore and normalize conversation about race. Just as an onion has many layers, The Onion Dialogues engages participants in a multi-faceted discussion about race. Exploring topics such as language, systemic racism throughout US history, microaggressions, white fragility, and more, Amy Owen and Tamara will lead participants through an interactive dialogue in this two-day introductory workshop.

The Onion Dialogues will be delivered via Zoom.

The Onion Dialogues is a two-day workshop from 9:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. on August 3 & August 4. Participants must attend both days.

Eligibility

Due to limited availability, The Onion Dialogues is only available to teams of two: nonprofit executive directors/CEO's and Board members of nonprofits serving Loudoun County.

• It is strongly encouraged that executive directors and a Board member attend together.

Only two participants per organization may attend (ideally, the executive director and a Board member).

• Board members may only attend if your executive director also attends with you. If your organization does not have an executive director, then the Board Chair and another Board member are encouraged to attend together.

• Participants must commit to attending both workshop days.

• Due to the interactive nature of this program, it is requested that all participants use video while in Zoom; in other words, this workshop is not suitable for only calling in to participate.

• Only 16 seats are available per workshop.
