Event description

Description


What do we do when we hear problematic things from people we can't throw away?


Learning Goals:

  • Is it my job? Figuring out if we’re the best person to address a particular individual
  • Learning to challenge the behavior (not the person)
  • Techniques and strategies for dealing with defensiveness
  • Getting to the root of the prejudice
  • Finding resources/tools to support that person on their learning journey
  • Examining power dynamics we’re experiencing in order to best serve
  • Addressing internalized racism and healing
  • Crafting meaningful apologies and changed behavior
  • Tapping into folks capacity for empathy
  • Balancing personal relationships with commitment to social justice - it’s hella frustrating when we love people who are doing/saying problematic and hurtful things a.k.a holding people accountable without throwing them away
  • Dealing with racist people in work spaces
  • Taking care of yourself in the process
  • How do people misunderstand things like freedom of speech etc… “political correctness” , “too sensitive”
  • Identifying the problematic behavior, how accountability is being dismissed
