Dismantling Systemic Racism in the Nonprofit Sector

Friday 28 January 2022

This 8-session workshop will help nonprofit leaders recognize and transform systems of inequity in their organzations.

Recent events have exposed a larger audience to inequities that are woven into the fabric of the U.S. To the surprise of some and the lived reality of most, this includes the systemic racism and other interconnected systems of oppression that are present in the nonprofit sector.

This program was created as an opportunity to collectively examine and identify inherent injustices in U.S. systems, while rethinking the potential of the sector to move forward, centering equity and dismantling white dominant culture. Our facilitation team will lead this eight-session program to unravel the systemic racism of the nonprofit sector, and guide and motivate leaders to transform the sector for more equitable systems and distributed power. This is open to anyone working in the nonprofit and philanthropic sector – board members, volunteer teams, staff, program officers, donors – anyone who wants to both learn about racism in the sector AND do something about it.

In this sixteen-hour (eight two-hour sessions) workshop you’ll join nonprofit professionals in a guided examination of the nonprofit and philanthropic sector. The sessions are lively, virtual gatherings with group discussion, reflection exercises, and a chance to learn from and connect with your peers. Sessions are NOT recorded. Your full participation in these experiential learning sessions helps to create trust among participants and provide a brave space form learning and exploring together.
