Race, Power & Responsibility

Institutionalized oppressive systems are structures that allow the policies and practices that support inequities. This session explores aspects of various social identities and the privileges and powers associated with each of them. Using the CCBD’s proprietary gamification learning system and digital app – Matrix of Intersectionality – you will learn to “unlock” interlocking systems of power to implement equity versus equality.

Microaggressions: Themes & Messages

Masterclass

Microaggressions: Themes & Messages

“You speak English very well.” “When I look at you, I don’t see color.” “What are you? You’re so interesting looking!” All microaggressions – verbal or nonverbal, intentional or unintentional – communicates a specific theme and message when deployed. Environmental and macro-level microaggressions communicate more systemic messages usually connected to belonging. Understanding the influence, implications, and impact of specific themes and messages help prevent and dismantle microaggressions when they occur.

Microaggressions: Implications and Impact

Masterclass

Microaggressions: Implications and Impact

Do you know what a microaggression is? Do you recognize one when it occurs? More importantly, did you know there are different types of microaggressions – microassaults, microinsults, and microinvalidations? Racial, sexual, and gender identity microaggressions occur every day towards people of marginalized group identities, including women, LGBTQ+ persons, and those with disabilities. Microaggressions are unrecognizable to those who employ them but not to those targeted by them. Learn to identify microaggressions and practical ways to counter them when they occur.

Learning to Learn

We live in an era where calls for establishing “cultures of belonging” have become the norm. When creating a cultural climate of inclusivity, one must not only learn “about” diversity, but also develop the critical analysis and reasoning skills to (re)frame diversity’s complexities to shift the overall cultural paradigm. As we become skilled and insightful evaluators of our thinking, we increase our ability to address a variety of “diversity” issues effectively both and appropriately.

Cultures of Belonging (Part I)

Masterclass

Cultures of Belonging (Part I)

Roles and Responsibilities

What’s my role in creating a culture of belonging? A culture that accepts, values, and leverages the strength in differences. Each person, knowingly or unknowingly, contributes and informs the organization’s overall cultural climate at all times. Therefore, each person must know and understand their specific role and how it functions positively or negatively. This session helps each person identify their cultural change role and provides specific action steps to drive cultural change to create an organization where everyone not only survives, but thrives.

Removing Visible and Invisible Barriers

A barrier is “a blockage, hurdle, or obstacle that prevents access, movement, or progress.” Organizations that struggle to create cultures of belonging – a culture that accepts, values, and leverages the strength in differences – often struggle to remove such barriers and reduce their impact. In this session, we identify specific organizational barriers and determine specific action steps to dismantle and remove them. If combined with Cultures of Belonging (Part I): Roles and Responsibilities, we will connect to the specific identified roles in Part I to help individuals determine their particular role and responsibility in removing barriers to create a culture of belonging.
