Moving Beyond Allyship: The Role of White Leaders in Owning Racism Risk at Work
Expressing solidarity and offering unconscious bias training might allow corporate teams to pat themselves on the back, but these actions do little to protect BIPOC employees from racism in the workplace. Attend this workshop to learn about strategies that have far greater potential to promote inclusion, advancement, and wellbeing of BIPOC team members. Attendees will leave this session with:
- An understanding of workplace anti-racism initiatives that actually work (versus those that don’t work, but are still done anyways)
- Advice for revamping anti-racism efforts to support behavioral change in employees, including specific exercises backed by research to reduce racist behaviors in the workplace
- An argument for altruistic allyship and how it benefits BIPOC employees and nonprofit missions much more than performative actions
- A shortlist of personal changes that each attendee can cultivate within themselves to become a better workplace ally to BIPOC team members.
