Event Details

Issues of race and privilege don’t just disappear during the hours of 9 to 5. They creep into our corner cubicles, stand face-to-face in client visits, speak loudly in our marketing materials, and sit silently during board meetings. Whether you work in education or health and human services, race and privilege is part of your day-to-day. So how can young nonprofit professionals begin to dismantle race and privilege in the workplace?

YNPN Twin Cities is partnering with YWCA of Minneapolis to explore our shared responsibility in addressing race and privilege in the sector and our personal lives. At this workshop, you’ll:

  • Become an expert on how race and privilege affect your life and daily interactions
  • Discover the impact of race and privilege on the composition of our sector's workforce
  • Learn how to model conversations around race and privilege
  • Get practical tools for addressing race and privilege in various environments

Let’s work together in creating better communities and a better sector. Register now!
