We offer a number of programs for people and organizations who may be at different stages of learning about racism and how to disrupt it.
Programs for Individuals
- Challenging Racism: Getting Started workshops are one- or two-session experiences that help participants think about racism in new ways and consider a commitment to taking their learning to the next level.
- Challenging Racism: Learning How is our core curriculum of eleven 2.5-hour sessions that are hands-on, active, challenging, and story-based with historical and current readings. The curriculum provides skill-building including structured-listening skills and difficult conversations.
- Challenging Racism: Learning to Lead is a 5-day facilitation training program that provides enhanced, extended practice of facilitation skills and devices that can be used to create safe spaces for difficult conversations in any setting.
- Challenging Racism: Continued provides opportunities for program alumni to learn and practice skills, go on field trips, and attend cultural events.
Programs for Organizations
In addition to organizing Learning How programs for their organizations or sponsoring staff attendance at Learning to Lead training, organizations have several options for engaging with Challenging Racism.
- Challenging Racism: Partner Program is a three-year collaboration designed to help an organization develop the internal capacity to regularly offer facilitated conversations to employees, members and/or stakeholders.
- Challenging Racism: Custom Programs are educational programs designed for specific organizations or groups.
When asked, “How do you judge racial progress?”
Black people compare where we are now to where we ought to be.
White people compare where we are now to where we used to be.
