2017 Community Leadership Series - Let's Talk about Race: Becoming Reflective about White Privilege in Civic Leadership



There are more great programs coming from the 2017 Community Leadership Series.  Our August webinar explores a topic that is challenging but important to help leaders working in our increasingly diverse communities.  Let's Talk about Race: Becoming Reflective about White Privilege in Civic Leadership will be presented online from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. (CDT) on Thursday, August 17, 2017.  
How do our patterns of thinking and our shared history influence the way we lead? Using personal stories and case studies, we will introduce and examine race, white privilege, structural racism, internalized racism, bias, color blindness, intersectionality, and white fragility to foster a personal reflection and collective conversation about race as a key element in civic leadership. 

How we lead, whether through influencing public policies, shaping organizational practices, or sustaining cultural beliefs may yield inequity among diverse community members and be informed by unconscious/unrecognized bias. This webinar will present research to help you understand how these systems have developed throughout history and discuss strategies to foster a genuine conversation about race that works towards equity for all community members.

This session is presented by Fernando Burga, Assistant Professor at University of Minnesota's Humphrey School of Public Affairs, and Eriks Dunens, Statewide Extension Educator in Leadership and Civic Engagement.

Register HERE through August 3 to be a part of this great learning event!
