For too long, too much of diversity, equity, and inclusion work – both within organizations and in social movements – has fallen on the shoulders of people of color. It’s time for white leaders to step up our game. This doesn’t mean trying to be the savior – it means deep listening, confronting courageously our inevitable bias, and working in true partnership with people of color.
AUTHENTIC SOLIDARITY LEADERSHIP PROGRAM
A Program for White Anti-Racist Women
As a white identified woman, have you ever asked yourself the following:
- How can I take a stronger stand for my equity values in my work and life?
- How can I effectively respond to feedback about blind spots related to race or power? What if I don’t agree?
- Does my feminism get in the way of my anti-racist work, or can I use it as a bridge?
- What is the right constituency for me to be working with, or the best role to play, given my identity?
- How do my other identities, besides gender, intersect with my anti-racism work?
IF YOU’VE EVER THOUGHT ABOUT THE QUESTIONS ABOVE, OR BEEN SEARCHING FOR SUPPORT TO ADVANCE YOUR EQUITY WORK,
this program is for you
Join a hand selected, intimate, group of other white identified women leaders, influencers, and advocates to bring about radical change in yourself, your work, and the world. Our cohort model puts you in deep learning and conversation with other equally committed change agents, facilitated by Rebecca Aced-Molina, an expert coach, trainer, and group facilitator with more than twenty years experience.
We will come together as a cohort for a six-month transformational journey
This program will support personal healing and a variety of practical applications; from everyday communication to systemic policy change
By the conclusion of the program you will be able to infuse your on-going work with calm, confident communication about race, gender, and other forms of oppression, including your unique contribution or stand as a white woman.
This holistic approach will support you to:
Receive feedback from people of color and/or other white allies nondefensively
Provide feedback to other emerging white allies without triggering defensiveness
Move open ended discussions about race to bold and specific action
Create conditions within your organization for appropriate risk taking around sensitive power dynamics
Balance getting your own needs met, as a woman, while leveraging your privilege responsibly
Repair relationships that have been strained because of issues related to race, gender or power
Raise funds for a people of color led social change effort
