This workshop is for white women in mid career or later who have positional authority and supervisory responsibilities within their organizations.
You have experience, expertise and great skills, and you’ve worked hard to get to where you’re at. You have an analysis of power and privilege, and are trying to figure out how to do your work within this awareness. Holding the nuances of sexism, internalized sexism, accountability, allyship and intersectionality can be challenging and confusing.
In the United States, white women comprise over 80% of employees in nonprofits of all kinds, as well as in education and nursing. As the dominant group in these and other service-oriented professions, we have a responsibility to be accountable for our racial privilege and its impacts. In this workshop, we will work from the crossroads of white privilege/supremacy, internalized sexism and patriarchy. There is a tension here that we must notice, feel and understand. As white people who are targeted by sexism, we get to look at the potential we have yet to step into where gender and race overlap. We must also be responsible and accountable for both our racial privilege and for undoing our internalized sexism.
We are a nonprofit too. Donate to Giving Compass to help us guide donors toward practices that advance equity.
