DIALOGUE to ACTION™
Antiracist Programming to Eliminate Racism
Conversations about Racism
This is a dynamic program that moves us from talk to meaningful action. You’ve had conversations about racism before, but this program dives into the real issues and root causes, and evolves into action that directly addresses systemic and institutional racism. Now more than ever, we need to listen to each other, break down the walls between us, and channel our emotions into meaningful action for sustainable change The groups contain six weekly sessions of 8-12 individuals talking about race and putting solutions for ending racism into action, guided by trained facilitators.
Summer/Fall Book Study Community Program
YWCA will host book studies based on the book How to Be an Antiracist by Dr. Ibram Kendi. This will be a 9-week study to learn how “just” not being a racist is not enough, we must all be Antiracist. These studies can be self-led by a member of the group using a guide provided by YWCA. Signup online.
Dr. Kendi defines antiracist ideas and defines an Antiracist as one who supports policy change through their actions and public commitment to those ideas.
YWCA will have the pleasure of hosting Dr. Kendi as a speaker in Delaware this fall.
Transforming White Privilege: A 21st Century Leadership Capacity
This program is based on the curriculum Transforming White Privilege: A 21st Century Leadership Capacity. (TWP) which is designed to help current and emerging leaders from a variety of sectors better identify, talk about and intervene to address white privilege and its consequences. It is a tool for white people to learn the history of policies that have led us to the current inequities in our system as well as their role in perpetuating the disparities, often unknowingly. This will be led by trained facilitators.
This multi-day program is available to groups or individuals.
On the Menu: Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
It is more important than ever for businesses, organizations and affinity groups to create and nurture equitable environments by making DE&I a priority. YWCA offers four 60 or 90 minute workshops in these topics: cultural identities and competence, inclusion, unconscious bias, micro aggressions. The sessions are best done as series but each can stand alone.
