Actions and Detail Panel
Social Identities & Non-Negotiable Conversations
Fri, April 7, 2017, 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM EDT
How do we make our workplaces and teams not just more equitable, but more effective by addressing issues of race? In the Social Identies & Non-Negotiable Conversations Workshop, we will reflect upon how diverse social identities—by race, sexuality, gender, (dis)ability, and other social axes— can shape and expand our collaborations and work. Along the way, we will draw upon existing theories and discuss strategies to recognize, acknowledge, engage, and bridge across differences in constructive ways.

Building Movement Project is a national nonprofit organization that develops research, tools, training materials and opportunities for partnership that bolster nonprofit organizations' ability to support the voice and power of the people they serve. We help organizations to align their social justice principles with their operating practices. Our practical resources and creative solutions help organizations innovate to meet the needs of the communities they serve and face the challenges of the external environment while support equity, fairness and sustainability. BMP concentrates on three main focus areas incuding leadership, nonprofits and social change, and movement building in order to accomplish these goals and further advance social change.
