Add to calendar

RSVP required:

The fabric of racism is inextricably woven and constructed into the founding principles of the United States. However, racism was done and can be undone through effective anti-racist education with, and in accountability to the communities most impacted by racism. Brittany Oliver will facilitate a workshop on how to divest from racism and prejudice at all levels and explain why it is important to show solidarity. 

Participants will:

  • Build a clear understanding of key concepts such as racial equity and structural racism
  • Learn to talk about race constructively within their organizations and with their constituents
  • Gain tools and practices for counteracting racial bias in their work and practices
  • Identify opportunities and next steps for applying concepts and strategies to advance racial equity
  • Develop and commit a call to action: what are you already doing, and what more can you do

Presented by Brittany Oliver, an award-winning activist, speaker, keynote speaker, workshop facilitator and media professional from Baltimore, MD.

Brittany has worked in the media/communications industry for several years, often serves as a keynote and guest speaker for events of all types and regularly conducts workshops on various topics for leaders, influencers, nonprofits and businesses on race and/or gender equity and intersectionality, media training and development, content strategy planning, public policy design and more.
