Beyond Diversity: Steps for Uprooting Racism, Privilege and Institutional Inequity

Participants will explore the causes -- both formal and informal for institutional racial inequities. By examining the various policies practices and procedures that exist within educational, employment and organizational settings -- and which often inadvertently perpetuate unequal opportunity and treatment -- session attendees can develop strategies for shifting their institutional cultures in the direction of greater parity.


  • The difference between individual bias and institutional bias 
  • The sources of internalized supremacy/oppression and how these can manifest in all of us 
  • Stereotype Vulnerability and Racial Performance Gaps - The Hidden Key to Disparities 
  • Privilege as the flipside of oppression
  • The harms of inequity for all members of an institution, including dominant group members 
  • Strategies for creating equity in the classroom, workspace, and throughout our institutions
