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
