Exploring Privilege and Allyship - Winter 2022

December 01, 10:00 am - 11:30 am CT
Hosted by Kesia King

The ongoing racial justice movement is not only shining a spotlight on our systemic racism, it is raising awareness of workplace discrimination and inequity. As leaders, we have the opportunity to change our organization for the better. In this leadership training, we will explore the concept of privilege and how systems and processes at our organization may benefit some individuals while oppressing others. We will define allyship and the responses you can choose from when you see or experience discrimination or other behavior that does not align with a culture of inclusion. We will also identify how to use our influence to create a more equitable and inclusive workplace for all.
