While we know that racism and its effects have impacted this country for over 400 years, the urgent call to action issued this summer demands a response from all people of faith and good will. Many leaders and administrators spent the past few months reading books on U.S. history, encountered new terms like “antiracism,” and held listening sessions within their organizations, schools, and parishes.
This 60-minute interactive webinar is designed to explore the next step, the movement from learning to doing. Denis Okema, the inaugural Director of Diversity and Inclusion at Cristo Rey Philadelphia and a longtime advocate for human rights and peace building–will lead a discussion on key topics such as combating biases, assessing organizational culture, pursuing equity in hiring and human resources, training staff, cultivating affinity groups, and retaining underrepresented groups.
