Experienced co-facilitators lead these dialogue-based sessions. The workshop illuminates how racism, classism, and other types of oppression are root causes of health inequity and introduces strategies to address them. This workshop consists of three consecutive half-day sessions, followed by a fourth day two weeks later.
Over The Four Days, Participants Will:
- Build a shared vocabulary to advance meaningful dialogue about oppression.
- Apply equity concepts to real-life scenarios.
- Explore the meaning and impact of cultural/social identity across groups.
- Understand the necessity and value of addressing racism and other forms of oppression to reduce health inequities.
- Identify opportunities to advance equity in our work and personal life.
In facilitating dialogue on subjects that may be uncomfortable for some participants, workshop leaders take great pains to ensure that the point-of-view of the workshop is transparent from the outset. Disagreement with that point-of-view is welcomed and encouraged as part of the process of coming to terms with cultural forces that normally discourage a frank discussion of racism, other types of oppression, and their impact on the public’s health.
This virtual workshop provides a 16-hour personalized experience, spread over four days, with a small cohort, breakout sessions, and interactive exercises. The registration fee is $995 per person.
