TOWNHALL SERIES: RACISM, EQUITY & INCLUSION

A Series of 4 Virtual TownHall’s


Defining Racism, Bias, & Fragility

Date: September 15th, 2020 from 6:00-7:30pm/est

Bias is a human and natural; our goal isn’t to eliminate it, rather we must recognize it when and where it exists in order to overcome. Racism is one of the most talked about discriminatory practices in today’s society. Join this talk to discuss difficult topics and learn how to navigate through some of the discomfort associated with defensiveness and stigma.

Session Length: 90-minutes of facilitated conversation

Micro- vs. Macro-Aggressions: 

Date: November 17th, 2020 from 6:00-7:30pm/est

Microagressions are individually elicited comments/actions toward an identity group. Macroaggressions are systemic policies and procedures that discriminate against particular identity groups. Join this talk to learn about the different types of aggressions and have open conversation around the meaning behind many of the statements we hear and see in today’s society.

White Privilege

Date: January 19, 2021 from 6:00-7:30pm/est

Privilege is surrounded by quite a bit of guilt and defensiveness; however, privilege (especially White Privilege) is unearned and not meant to evoke shame. Join this session to have thoughtful conversation around privilege and how to use this privilege toward becoming an active ally rather than an unconscious oppressor.

Action Steps Around Race

Date: March 16th, 2021 from 6:00-7:30pm/est

After participating in the preview three sessions, attendees will have garnered reflections on where they are within society (in relation to perspectives of others). Ultimately, our goal is not simply to talk, but to ACT upon becoming a more inclusive and equitable society. Join this session to hear from others about how to hold one another accountable and continue individual growth around race.
