Facilitating Racial Equity: 2/26 & 2/27

February 26 @ 11:00 am - February 27 @ 5:30 pm CST

Equipping participants with the skills, frameworks, and practice that they need to facilitate their own racial equity workshop.

Please note that this is a two-day training happening over the span of 2 days.

Please note that there is a prerequisite course prior to taking this training. Participants are REQUIRED to take the Building Racial Equity: Foundation course.

Race Forward believes that racial justice is more important in this moment than any other we have faced. We must embed racial equity into all of our daily operations and hold fast to a commitment that enables us to learn, grow and practice racial equity work together.

As the world continues to adapt to the pandemic, we will continue to offer virtual learning spaces that center on normalizing, organizing and operationalizing racial equity into our work at every intersection.

One of the biggest challenges of racial equity work in organizations is building a culture where people feel supported to learn, grow, and practice together. Facilitating for Racial Equity is a workshop that gives participants the tools and practice to face this challenge. This workshop builds on the foundation of the Building Racial Equity workshop, equipping participants with the skills, frameworks, and practice that they need to facilitate their own racial equity workshops. Participants will engage with a behind-the-scenes view of how racial equity workshops are structured, built, and delivered. Participants will leave this training:

  • More familiar with the practices of equity-focused facilitation
  • With more comfort & fluency with naming social dynamics and guiding group learning.
  • Able to use the structure, frameworks, and exercises in the Building Racial Equity workshop.

Who we most want to reach and engage:

This training is geared towards people in organizations that are already mostly aligned in their commitment to racial equity and have already dedicated resources and collective labor. The organization should have staff education as a significant priority of their internal-facing organizational change strategy, and have sent staff to participate in a Building Racial Equity Workshop.

We also welcome individual facilitators whose work is to facilitate conversations around race and racial justice.

By the end of the training, participants will:

1. Be familiar with the practices of equity-focused facilitation

2. Have more comfort & fluency with naming social dynamics and guiding group learning.

3. Be able to use the structure, frameworks, and exercises in the Building Racial Equity workshop
