Becoming an Antiracist Leadership Team

September 18, 2020 9:30 am – 12:00 pm Pacific

Most organizational leaders are selected, promoted and valued for their ability to hold a long-range vision, turn strategic priorities into concrete next steps, manage and grow staff, and hold functional expertise in critical areas such as human resources, finance, operations, or program design. As your team engages in a process to center racial equity in organizational culture, this new North Star must be incorporated into the job descriptions of leadership team members. Studies show that while anyone can attend a training or read a book on antiracism, about 50% of current leaders will not be able to internalize antiracist values in ways that will allow them to lead from this perspective. When leadership team members are divided - some holding dominant culture ideals with others struggling to pivot towards antiracist practices - an inertia will overcome the system. In this session, leadership team members will:

  • Define strategic priorities for 2021 that incorporate a racial justice lens.
  • Clarify the role of leadership team members in leading this change.
  • Learn a process to vet the ability of leadership team members to incorporate antiracist practices in their leadership style in 2021.
  • Practice navigating competing priorities using Antiracist Structured Thinking Protocols.
This training is part of an ongoing series. Sign up to hear about future antiracism trainings for leaders.
