Summary: ​Changing an organization's culture is one of the most difficult challenges an organization can undertake. It is even more challenging when trying to dismantle a white-dominant/supremacy culture. This is because WSC comprises an interlocking set of goals, roles, processes, values, communications practices, attitudes, and assumptions. that fit together as a mutually reinforcing system and combine to prevent any attempt to change it. This workshop teaches participants how to decenter and deconstruct WSC by offering new and more equitable cultural norms.


Objectives:

  • Understanding the elements of White Supremacy Culture

  • Introduce antidotes and new cultural norms to replace WSC

  • How WSC shows up in spaces of people of color

  • How to decenter and deconstruct WSC effectively
