Open to the Public

The workshop provides an in-depth look at race and racism in the United States. Individuals and institutional leaders responsible for diversity and social justice will appreciate the exploration of the historical development of systemic racism and its continuing effects on our society. Participants will examine ongoing realities of racism including the identity-shaping power racism has on People of Color and White People; explore racism’s individual, institutional and cultural manifestations; and consider the link between racism and other forms of oppression. A strategic methodology to dismantle racism will be introduced, focusing specifically on applying principles of organizing and social/cultural change. 

Crossroads workshops are designed to reveal how systemic racism plays a role in often unseen ways, creating barriers to true multicultural diversity and racial justice. We’ll help you to struggle with the tough questions and begin to equip you with the skills to dismantle racism and transform your institution.
