About the Event

Join this exclusive SCLN Alumni DEI Series with RLI Alum Angela Sanchez. We al know the importance of making Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion a normal practice in our lives, but at SCLN, we want to go deeper. The real work happens when we determine to be actively  anti-racist. This interactive four-part series will walk you through the basics, beginning with your own social identity and ending with tools to be anti-racist in your professional, personal, and civic lives. Session 1: Social Identities: Where are We all Coming From – July 15th, 4:00 – 5:45 PM An activity followed by a larger discussion around how we navigate the world through both our perceptions and how we are perceived. The goal is to set the groundwork for future discussions about DEI. Session 2: Now You See Me: Understanding Implicit Bias and What to Do about It – July 29th, 4:00 – 5:45 PM Implicit bias refers to the formed assumptions everyone has by virtue of being a participant in a human society. This is a presentation on understanding where implicit bias comes from, how it impacts the work of an organization, and what can be done to positively manage it. Session 3: The “R-Word” – August 5th, 4:00 – 5:45 PM Many people are uncomfortable talking about race. Another difficult term is “racist.” This session aims to build better understanding about the implications of race in the US, the lasting impacts of racism, and why this issue is so core to future growth. Session 4: How to be an Anti-Racist 101 – August 26th, 4:00 – 5:45 PM Participants should have completed sessions on social identity and implicit bias. Understanding white privilege, the culture of white supremacy across large-scale and local levels, and how to actively combat it in both our professional and personal lives. Price: $99 for the entire series. Registration: Save the date in your calendars! Registration will open on June 4th at noon. This is an exclusive SCLN Alumni offering, but spaces are very limited on a first-come, first-serve basis.
