About the event
About our Course:
Olympic gold medalist Ibtihaj Muhammed once said “silence is as political as taking a knee”. This seminar is different from any other in the RCC University catalog in that we will distinctively focus on what causes you to be silent when racism and its many intersections with our diversity rear its head. You can find your voice, even in the presence of feelings like fear, shame, guilt, and fatigue. You will be coached regarding what you need to find your voice more consistently in personal, professional, and/or community spaces. Former Ivy League Spelman College President and author, Dr. Beverly Daniel Tatum, has also advised that all that is necessary for us to continue heading toward a more racially inequitable society is silence. This seminar will equip you to find your voice even if you have experienced shame, fear, perfectionism, fatigue, or other challenging emotions when speaking about race in equity, diversity, and inclusion efforts. We must know ourselves and what keeps us from speaking while learning to sustain healthy racial dialogue and anti-racist action in our reflection, conversations, and collaboration. The highly engaging and dynamic group coaching approach in this seminar will help participants practice using their voices on anti-racism amidst diversity, equity, and inclusion.
