Recent incidents of police brutality and bias have sparked acute outrage, widespread protests, and a new movement to reckon with the full effects of systemic racism. Because nonprofits play a critical role in serving vulnerable communities – those most adversely impacted by systemic racism – it is a must that their staff be both culturally proficient and able to work together effectively.
In this timely course, you will learn practical concepts for developing trust, workplace inclusiveness, and culturally responsive programs co-designed by your local community members.
Through safe, supportive discussions and activities, learners will engage in topics like racism, white privilege, anti-discrimination laws, the myth of color-blindness, and the principles that guide culturally competent workplaces. You will walk away with team-building exercises for ongoing cultural bridge-building among staff, and tools for planning initiatives aimed at meaningful organizational change.
At the end of this course, you will be able to:
- Define implicit bias, racism, and white privilege, and compare and contrast the concepts.
- Describe the seven principles for developing a culture of inclusion.
- Identify at least two strategies for fostering inclusion at your organization.
Best for organizational leaders – executives, board members, and senior staff – as well as managers/supervisors, especially overseeing program teams and other units that face and engage with local communities.
