Thursday, Sept. 14 | 5-6:30 p.m. | Intercultural Center
Presented by Alicia Sojourner from the YWCA in Minneapolis

As a student or a leader, we all have been there:

  • Someone tells a racist joke, and no matter how hard you try, you can’t seem respond appropriately.
  • You are committed in creating an inclusive campus environment, but would like more skills to help you respond to students.

If this sounds familiar, we invite you to take part in our Confronting Racism workshop. 

This workshop is designed for those who have a commitment in changes the systems that hurt students in different ways, and want to acquire skills in dealing with “ism” as it occurs in their personal and school lives. The workshop will develop the participants’ active listening skills, as well as help them practice skills to respond to overt ism (i.e. racist remarks), and covert racism (privilege, microaggressions, etc). The skills learned in this workshop can be easily applied and taught to others to create more inclusive environments in our lives, and to continue the work of eliminating ism on campus.
