YWCA Delaware Confronts Institutional Racism
"The Issue of Race Deeply Shapes America"
YWCA Delaware recognizes MLK, Jr. Day each year by presenting an Action Forum to raise awareness and inspire action to affect social change around issues of racial disparity and race relations. Join us for this year's Action Forum to address institutional racism based on the fact that race continues to be a significant factor in every dimension of life such as employment, education, economics, housing, health care, crime, political candidates and public policy.
The focus of the forum is to engage the community, willing executives and public policymakers to become proactive in finding common ground to close the racial divide in Delaware communities.

Panel Discussion: Confronting Institutional Racism
This forum will create opportunities for the community, business, government and political leaders together to have open and honest dialogue regarding racial justice issues that broadly impact the success of people of color and the entire Delaware community. The panelist will be talking about the need to develop workable solutions in the workplace and our communities, placing emphasis on the fact that diversity has real purpose and in our collective strength lies unity. We must move beyond racial dialogue and develop more integrative workplaces by creating risk-free environments that allow people to freely contribute their best ideas by genuinely being included. Influential people must move out of their comfort zone and serve as examples for others to do the same by establishing circles of inclusion.
FREE, but seating is limited.
