Phase (Exercise) One – Understanding the Roots of Racism: is a multi-day intensive group workshop focused on disrupting racism and racial bias, increasing awareness of perpetual, systematic racial inequities through the lens of race, sex, and gender. The process consists of analyzing information to establish a baseline understanding of racial situations to better understand historical and current inequities, and disproportionate outcomes. It includes an experiential analysis and evaluation of the psychology and sociology of white supremacy, anti-blackness, anti-non-Whiteness, human behavior, and ongoing impacts to traditionally and perpetually marginalized communities, the result of living in a structurally racist and sexist culture. It is an essential starting point for any person or organization attempting to address or solve issues involving race (i.e., disproportionate outcomes by race, racial bias, racial exclusion, underrepresentation, anti-racism leadership practices, etc.). Participants engage in interactive exercises to provide opportunities to evaluate their own biases and examine how they fit into the larger cultural experience in the United States. This deep learning takes place in a supportive, encouraging, and challenging environment, with the goal of increasing cohesion, concern and understanding of the human experience.

This course will be offered as a live interactive virtual conference.  Login instructions along with the digital syllabus will be shared with attendees a week before the meeting.  Included in your registration fee is access to the course recordings on demand (available within a week after the conference) for any sessions that you miss, available for up to 30 days post-course.
