We and White Supremacy
A Practitioner Learning Lab
Dates: Feb 1, Feb 15, Mar 1, Mar 15, Mar 29. Time: 10-12 PST/1-3 EST/ 7-9 CET
It’s imperative for change agents to understand how white supremacy impacts our work.
In this workshop we’ll engage in a deep examination of white racial conditioning. Over five sessions, we’ll complete Layla Saad’s workbook Me and White Supremacy, which began as a 28-day Instagram challenge and became a free pdf workbook downloaded by more than 100,000 people.
This is for white people who are committed to becoming better allies by exploring our blind spots with compassionate colleagues. We’ll focus on white supremacy at an individual level and explore how to decolonize private and public spaces and change systems from the inside out: one person, one family, one community or organization at a time. This conversation will be jointly facilitated by Berlin-based social innovator Karolina Iwa and GLEN program director Krista Bremer.
Karolina is a social innovator, intercultural psychologist, Theory U Practitioner, and learning facilitator at EIT Climate-KIC. She is currently working with an all-white team of the Systems Innovation Learning Partnership, a collaboration with Sida (Sweden's government agency for development cooperation), supporting systemic experiments in ODA countries.
Krista Bremer is an award-winning author and essayist whose work has appeared in the New York Times Magazine, O: The Oprah Magazine, and elsewhere. She is a facilitator, a host, and a student of Thomas Huebl. As program director of The GLEN, she is passionate about collaborative leadership and supporting leaders working at the grassroots level and from the margins.
