The Impact of White Supremacy on System Involved Youth Serving Organizations
Time & Location
About the Event
As service providers we strive to change things for system involved youth, families, and communities. We want to create a better world. We look at the issues outside our doors and often miss the issues within our organizations, including the impact that white supremacy culture has on how we show up for communities. Characteristics of white supremacy are damaging to organizational structures, the people working within them and the clients we ultimately seek to serve. They hurt both BIPOC and White people. In this training we will examine the ways that white supremacy exists in organizations, the impact it has on how we show up in this work and how we can work to unlearn and change these ways of work.
- Participants will identify three (3) characteristics of white supremacy culture they have seen in organizations.
- Participants will be able describe the way that white supremacy culture impacts their work as service providers
- Participants will identify one (1) characteristic of white supremacy culture they embody and will work to change.
