Visibilizing Dominant Culture in Your Organizational Practices

August 14, 2020 9:30 am – 12:00 pm Pacific
Sangita Kumar, Russell Jones, Ricardo Perez, Allison Kenny, + Aminta Steinbach

In this session, organizational teams will explore the impact of dominant culture ideals (based on the work of Tema Okun) such as perfectionism, sense of urgency, and individualism in organizational practices. These beliefs pervade most of our organizations through our practices. We will define fourteen organizational practices steeped in white supremacy beliefs and reflect on areas of strength and opportunity for the organization/team. Participants will then identify transformative practices, as alternative ways of getting work done while preserving relationships, rigour and effectiveness. Finally, the group will choose one practice exercise to explore greater power-sharing, transparency, or collectivism.

This training is part of an ongoing series. Sign up to hear about future antiracism trainings for leaders.
