Systemic racism is a complex phenomenon that relatively few people understand well. Indeed, many people believe they have a fairly good grasp of the issues and yet would be hard pressed to provide much information, data or knowledge that would indicate a more than a surface-level understanding. What the general public often sees and understands are the symptoms of systemic racism, the proverbial 10% tip of the iceberg. What most miss is the remaining 90% of the iceberg, hidden from their experiential viewpoint. The invisible system hidden beneath the surface, how it operates and its effects, can be made more visible however if one is willing and motivated to take a deep dive of discovery, with a curious and open mind.
Facilitated by Dr. Steve L. Robbins, this special “Understanding Systemic Racism” workshop offers participants a powerful spotlight on the subtle, hidden aspects of racism and systemic racial bias. Good intentions and well-meaning efforts to create racially diverse and inclusive environments often fall short when lack of knowledge and misunderstanding of the problems exists. This insightful workshop is designed to take care of the knowledge and understanding components while also providing action steps that flow from a better understanding and felt knowledge of racism and related issues.
To address systemic racism in any effective manner requires an accurate understanding of the problem. Such an understanding is required to develop a strategy and next steps that will have a greater chance of producing desired results. The Understanding Systemic Racism: A Framework for Positive Action workshop will better inform and prepare participants to battle a powerful foe like systemic racism.
