Libertory Workplaces

August 29, 2022 from 9:00AM – 1:00PM PST

Speaker: Social Justice Partners LA
SJPLA will facilitate this session focused on cultivating anti-racist culture and practices in the workplace. The session will: Introduce the dynamics of white supremacy culture as it shows up in the workplace and unpack the impact on individuals and teams; create space for participants to identify how this shows up within their individual and collective workplace practices, policies, and norms and discuss antidotes; and discuss the three-pronged elements of representation, culture, and systems in building liberatory teams and action steps related to each. Participants will leave the workshop with concrete action steps to consider within their organizations to work toward more liberatory and anti-racist workplaces.
