This past year was one of amplified conversations and unlearning. With the movements around racial justice during this time, many people are finding themselves seeking education and help with unlearning learned behaviors. Necessary conversations have been sparked around racial injustice and inequity, and those must continue. You may be wondering things like:
- “How do I continue to show up in this conversation?”
- “How can I be an ally to communities of color?”
- “I want to be a part of positive change, but I’m not sure where to start.”
If this is you and your team, Julie and co-facilitator Ericka Young have a six-step virtual training program to help navigate racism as an ally. The Unpacking Racism program helps allies in training to:
- Recognize systemic racism in your personal and professional lives
- Use your privilege as a chance to be an ally for others
- Lead inclusively in today’s polarized environment
- Build an inclusive workplace culture where diversity thrives
- Create space for others through candid conversations
- Practice comfort with discomfort
This program can be offered in a variety of formats and lengths, with every session designed to be highly interactive and discussion-forward. Groups will unpack specific scenarios and challenges facing leaders in Corporate America, and at home, today. Program includes comprehensive 30-page workbook, session recordings, and personalized Unpacking Racism certification.
Being an ally is a journey, and you do not have to do it alone.
At Next Pivot Point, we believe in the power of allies. There has never been a better time to lead like an ally and be there for people of color.
