Hello Agents of Social Change!
Our organization is committed to Justice, equity, diversity and inclusion. While these JEDI principles are extremely valuable to me, I am learning that dominant culture abounds in our organizational practices. We are committed to making this organization a more equitable and comfortable place to work for all of us. We have so many resources and assets among this team already, I am excited to learn from all of you. And, to activate our success, I am investing in a capacity building package with Be the Change Consulting, leaders in our field in healing-centered culture change.
As part of this package, the leadership team and I will experience a four-part series to Transform our Organizational Practices. Simultaneously, managers will receive training on Culturally Responsive Supervision, to better amplify our teams. And all staff will have the opportunity to register for ten additional workshops to explore Racial Identity, Learn Equity-Centered Facilitation and Deepen Your Professional Skills. We know this work to invest in ourselves while also doing the work of our organization will represent an emotional and physical lift, so, in addition, you can register for bi-weekly wellness sessions. We acknowledge that all of us are at different places in our journey in this work. Having the opportunity to attend trainings with people outside our organization will allow us to learn from others. We will also have opportunities to learn in racial affinity-based groups at times as well, to ensure we practice our work in safe containers. These sessions, led by seasoned specialists will help us widen our toolbox of resiliency tools and mindfulness practices so that we can stay rooted and connected in this journey.
I am hopeful that this investment will help all of us arrive poised to take 2021 by storm. Please let me know if you have any questions.
There are many ways to do this - choose the one that’s right for you!
