Develop leadership skills needed to advance racial equity and justice.
Our collective strength as advocates for racial and economic justice is driven by the leaders within our community who steer us toward our mission. Effective leaders understand how to build consensus, motivate and engage others, analyze situations from various perspectives, and connect with diverse audiences.
Leadership for Racial Justice addresses leadership at four levels — self, people, organizations, and systems — that correspond directly to the internal, interpersonal, institutional, and systemic levels where racism is primarily enacted.
Participants apply and attend the course as part of racial equity teams that are diverse by race, gender, and position (e.g., positional leaders, advocates, DEI representatives, others). We suggest that 2 – 5 staff members participate from each organization.
This course includes seven live sessions of 4.5 hours each offered over six months. Between live sessions, individuals receive readings and other assignments designed to prepare them for the online sessions, and teams undertake activities to apply new racial justice leadership skills within their organizations. Peer support and coaching will be provided to individual teams.
