Financial Support

Our mission is to make all of our programs accessible. Every fee-based offering has a limited number of pay-what-you-can spots available to support self-identified people of color, members of marginalized groups (queer people, transgender people, and  people with disabilities) and those in financial need (those for whom the cost to attend is not financially possible). 

These spots are offered on a first come, first served basis. Please pay at the highest level you can afford. In order for this support to be available, we rely on those who can afford to pay the full price to do so.

Find out if spots are available by clicking REGISTER NOW on the event you are interested in.

In the event that these spots have been claimed and you’re interested in attending please email support@insightla.org to be added to the financial support waitlist.

In addition, we offer Payment Plans in a variety of amounts and durations (ie: If the class is $100 you can make 2 monthly payments of $50 or 4 monthly payments of $25). For payment plan requests, please email support@insightla.org

Safety 

We work to protect the safety of all students. We reserve the right to remove any student from any class, sitting group, retreat, or any event if the student is disruptive to the safe learning environment we maintain for all.

Refund and Event Policies

Note: this will be a hybrid (online and in-person) event. 

Join anti-racist educator Tim Wise for a special evening presentation followed by a Q&A. 

In this session, Tim will explore the causes — both formal and informal — for institutional racial inequities. By examining the various policies, practices, and procedures that exist within educational, employment, and organizational settings — and which often inadvertently perpetuate unequal opportunity and treatment — participants can develop strategies for shifting their institutional cultures in the direction of greater parity. 

Among the topics that will be explored in this session are:

  • The difference between individual bias and institutional bias
  • The sources of internalized supremacy/oppression and how these can manifest in all of us
  •  Privilege as the flipside of oppression
  • Stereotype Vulnerability and Racial Performance Gaps – The Hidden Key to Disparities
  • The harms of inequity for all members of an institution, including dominant group members
  •  Strategies for creating equity in the classroom, workspace, and throughout our institutions

Schedule:
6:00 pm:
Doors Open
7:00 pm: Talk Begins
8:00 pm: Q&A
8:30 pm: Talk Ends

Tim Wise is among the most prominent anti-racist writers and educators in the United States. Named one of “25 Visionaries Who are Changing Your World,” by Utne Reader, Wise has spoken in all 50 states, on over 1000 college and high school campuses, and to community groups across the nation. Wise is the author of seven books, including his latest, Under the Affluence: Shaming the Poor, Praising the Rich and Sacrificing the Future of America and his highly acclaimed memoir, White Like Me: Reflections on Race from a Privileged Son. He is also the host of the popular bi-weekly podcast, Speak Out with Tim Wise. He has appeared on hundreds of radio and television programs and is a regular contributor to discussions about race on CNN.

This event will be recorded and emailed to everyone that registers. 

This is an in-person and online event: To uphold our COVID safety protocols, capacity will be limited to 75 at InnerWay LA in Culver City. Proof of vaccination with boosters will be required along with masks.
