Cont Ed: Leading Beyond White Supremacy
10:00am - 12:00pm
Audience: Alumni, Current Student, Current Student - Cloned, Faculty, Neighbor or Friend, Prospective Student, Staff
In this workshop, we will investigate how white supremacy has influenced leadership within the field of social work and other helping professions. More specifically, while decentering white supremacy culture, we will explore the forms of leadership integral to navigating and surviving systems of oppression–and reflect upon the question: how do we re-envision and build futures in which we lead outside the confines of white supremacy?
The audience will have the opportunity to interrogate how white supremacy culture is perpetuated in the work and how we can unwed ourselves from our embodiment of those characteristics. In particular, the audience will engage in ways that support the deepening and expanding of the skills and resources needed to create the space for self and communal healing.
Cost: $20 for all
