ABOUT THIS EVENT
Diversity Circles is thrilled to present this workshop from Hook or Crook Consulting!
Session description and learning outcomes provided by Hook or Crook Consulting.
This session provides decision makers an opportunity to explore how we can divest from common tactics, tools and practices that perpetuate dysfunction and harm within our organizations–particularly for marginalized community members. Participants will be invited to explore key issues that commonly arise within organizations through an intersectional lens, touching on governance, reputation, finance and human resources. Learning outcomes include the ability to:
- Articulate the ways decision-makers can begin to divest out of tactics, tools and practices that perpetuate dysfunction and harm;
- Differentiate and identify how manifestations of white supremacy show up in organization-based conflict aversion and perfectionism;
- Develop an awareness of the ways power-over can enable gatekeeping and tokenism to harm marginalized team members;
- Cultivate more capacity to address and respond to conflict in care-centered ways; and
- Reflect on the possible opportunities that are afforded to us when we can embrace interdependence, slowness, and flattened hierarchies.
