VIRTUAL: Leaders Taking Action For Equity

VIRTUAL: Leaders Taking Action For Equity
Topic-Leadership

The Employers’ Association is gathering a small group of 15 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 (he facilitated a previous group through this book in July/August).  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 group of leaders will meet once a week over 8 weeks in 1 hour meetings.  Meetings will be centered on chapters 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:  $65 Member | $80 Non-Member 
A paperback copy of the book is included with each registration!  Registrations must be made by 10/12/20!!

Meetings will be virtually held on Tuesdays from 12:00-1:00 (October 20 – December 8).

Note - You will be given virtual access details no later than a day before the first meeting.
