Embracing Differences for Advocacy and Empowerment
Are you ready to lean into some brave space?
This course is for anyone looking to build intercultural competency skills, gain deeper self-awareness, and build broader compassion and connection with others. In this online expansion of the original Isms & Issues training, we are setting out to learn a model of multicultural awareness and to provide a common language and common ground for multicultural dialog and relationships.
We do this so we can have meaningful and heart-felt discourse on a range of important issues including racism, classism, sexism, homophobia and transphobia, ableism, ageism and more.
What You’ll Get
• Context for understanding multicultural work
• Leaning in to how the “isms” live in our bodies
• A deep dive into our own identities and how we learn • A useful toolkit to have in daily interactions
• Models for behaviors to be an Ally and Advocate
This 6 Week Online Course is taught live by a diverse group of co-facilitators who have lived and worked in multicultural learning environments for decades. Each course session is designed to create as much diversity and safety as possible for all participants.
