With the recent killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and countless others at the hands of police, concerns about ways that systemic racism persists in U.S. institutions has become a focal point of advocacy and bold action. Unfortunately, the ways that racism rears its head in the workplace can often go unaddressed, leaving even the most well intended employees unaware of how their actions, assumptions, and biases may perpetuate harm. If you want to shift culture in your workplace to be more relevant to this moment, this experience is for you. Through this workshop, “How To Not Be Racist at Work….By Accident,” learn how to cultivate more understanding about how your employees can foster a more antiracist workplace.
Through experiential play exercises, Jeff creates an interactive space that helps you become more aware, perceptive, and empathic through putting participants in the shoes of those experiencing racism in the workplace. From understanding racist microaggressions to developing a deeper awareness of self, I offer scenarios to help you and your team identify and develop the skills to counteract racism in workplace culture.
