In this interactive keynote, participants learn a framework and common language for the four pillars of Social Justice. We will explore what we all need to do to effectively engage across cultures and undo systems of oppression. This framework considers the importance of deepening awareness of self—moving from color blindness to racial cognizance, increasing knowledge of others and their experiences with systems of oppression, developing skills to effectively engage across cultures, and advocating and taking action to dismantle institutional racism and other forms of oppression
Objectives: Participants will:1. Gain shared understanding of key terms.2. Learn a framework for the work we need to do to engage effectively across cultures and undo systems of oppression.3. Begin to explore how they were socialized around race, racism, and race relations.
