This is a two part series with a single registration - November 29th and December 13th. We are proud to host DEI trainer and facilitator Dara Snyder to support land trusts, watershed councils and SWCDs in our shared goal to build a diverse, welcoming and inclusive conservation community in Oregon. This is a unique opportunity to better understand the history of inequities in Oregon and build cross-cultural competency so we can better support community needs.
Goals of this course include:
-Building shared definitions of key terms such as: cultural, institutional, and structural racism
-Building shared definitions of key terms such as: people of color/BIPOC; race; racism; interpersonal racism.
-Ability to name at least four events related to racism in Oregon & US history that shape our current environment.
-Ability to normalize talking about race and racism in the workplace and be better equipped to identify and address racism when it happens.
