A Workshop for White Women

As we work in multicultural partnerships, it is beneficial to examine the unique dynamics of our socialization around gender and race. While white women face experiences of gender oppression, we also benefit from white privilege. In what ways do these two phenomena work together to create misunderstandings, missed collaborations, and acts of supremacy?

In this workshop we use a model to examine how our identities develop as we grow in our understanding of personal and institutional oppression. Over two days we use highly interactive methods including reflective writing, video clips, small group conversations, story telling, role-playing and many other ways to take a deep look into learned patterns of behavior.

Recognizing these patterns helps us name and practice strategies to better collaborate in multicultural settings. During our time together we co-create a community where our spirits are renewed and our commitment to social justice strengthened.
