VIRTUAL: Leaders Taking Action For Equity

VIRTUAL: Leaders Taking Action For Equity
Topic-Leadership

The Employers’ Association is gathering a small group of 24 individuals who would like to meet virtually to discuss and act on the topics in the book, Uprooting Racism: How White People Can Work For Racial Justice (4th Edition) by Paul Kivel.  This book was chosen as the backdrop for a meaningful discussion because it explores many challenging concepts and is oriented toward action (self and society).

Jason Reep, The Employers’ Association’s President, will facilitate the sessions.  Jason used the first edition many years ago when facilitating a number of white male business groups exploring issues of power, privilege, oppression, and responsibility.  This new ad hoc group will meet once a week over 6 weeks for 1½ hours.  Each meeting will be centered on a chapter from the book.  Discussion will focus on what to do with the various ideas and challenges posed through the readings so it is not important whether participants agree or disagree with every aspect of the writing.  We will have robust discussion and work to support one another as we begin to behave differently in our workplaces (and other areas of our lives).

Although this group will be oriented toward action it is not a group of activists – all are welcome to join.  It is our intent to equip individuals who would like to do something to improve issues of racism within their spheres of influence by providing the concepts and support needed to accomplish this critical goal.  If this sounds like something you want to be involved with, please register ASAP to receive a copy of the book prior to the first meeting.

Price:  $45 Member | $60 Non-Member 
A paperback copy of the book is included with each registration! (Books need to be picked up at TEA or arrangements made to get the book to you).

Meetings will be virtually held on Wednesdays from 12:00-1:30 (July 1 – August 5).

Note - You will be given virtual access details in a follow up email from LiveWebinar on Monday, June 29, 2020.
