To successfully integrate equity analysis into programs and culture, we must first build a space with the capacity for discomfort, conflict, and critique. This This workshop presented by the Kalamazoo YWCA focuses on creating harm-mitigated spaces for discussions around justice and equity. It also provides a constructive analysis of power and privilege. Participants will use guided exploration for using our own complex identities as a framework for beginning and continuing institutional change. 

Participants will: 

 • Learn the difference between a safe space and a brave space. 

 • Increase their capacity to have conversations around privilege, power, and identity. 

 • Understand the difference between the individual, institutional, and systemic racism. 

 • Self-access their individualized antiracist journey. 

This is an interactive workshop and participants are encouraged to stay for the entire workshop and to keep their cameras on as much as able. 

Presented by J. Kyon and Daniel Hamilton, YWCA Kalamazoo 

Participants will be emailed the virtual meeting link on September 2nd.
