Allyship, Anti-Racism, and White Fragility
September 13 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
This two-part workshop series will examine the concepts of whiteness and white fragility, with a particular emphasis on the ways they impede our ability to have meaningful and authentic discussions about race. Armed with this knowledge, this workshop aims to help participants examine their own fragility and what they can do differently going forward. This workshop is delivered in two sessions and will involve facilitated learning, as well as large and small group discussions to deepen your understanding. Participants will be encouraged to get comfortable with discomfort!
- Learn about the concepts of whiteness and white fragility.
- Examine the ways in which white fragility impedes our ability to discuss issues of race.
- Recognize and mitigate reactions of discomfort and defensiveness associated with white fragility.
- Uncover tools for engaging in authentic discussions about race.
