About the event

What will it take to build an antiracist organization? In this follow-up virtual event to “Race, Equity, and Justice: A Call to Action,” we will address what skills and actions are necessary for workplaces to advance beyond statements to being antiracist organizations that dismantle systemic racism and rebuild equitable structures in their place.

Join us for a hard, powerful, and action-oriented conversation that connects our individual behaviors to organizational practices that build internal capacity for change. We’ll engage with experts to learn how organizations normalize whiteness through constraining the authenticity of non-White employees and how to develop skills as allies to build effective alliances that oppose racism and sustain change. Leave with actionable strategies for working across differences to build antiracist structures that allow all members to thrive.
