Anti-Racism, White Consciousness (5-Part Series)

Monday, June 17, 2024
3:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Faculty, Staff

GVSU Inclusion & Equity Institute Color Burst

This is a 5-session learning cohort for white identifying faculty and staff at GVSU who are interested in learning about and developing anti-racist practices in their daily lives. Because the learning content is progressive from session to session, there is an expectation that participants will be able to attend every session.

Systems of oppression and white privilege are often invisible to those that benefit from them. For this reason, it is especially important for those that identify as white to intentionally engage in anti-white supremacy work to better identify their own behaviors, to understand the systems at play, and to learn how to deepen personal and institutional anti-racism commitments.

Learning Outcomes

  • Deepen our self-reflective anti-racist practices.
  • Understand white identity development.
  • Examine how white supremacy culture, white privilege, and intersectionality impact one’s relationship to social structures.
  • Incorporate daily practice strategies to analyze and dismantle racially oppressive practices and systems.
  • Integrate knowledge and practice in our understanding of agency to show up as learners, allies, and accomplices.
