-In-Person Event-

 

As we begin to look toward the new year, there is no better time to recommit to creating a more equitable workplace. The first step? Building your anti-racism toolkit. 

 

Join LMHQ and the Bard MBA in Sustainability program for an in-person workshop exploring the concepts of anti-racism, intersectionality, systemic racism, and the system of white supremacy. Attendees will also specifically examine how anti-racist leadership practices are critical for business leaders in the sustainability field and beyond.

 

By the end of this prerequisite, students will be able to:

  • Distinguish between non-racist and anti-racist stance   
  • Identify the ways systemic/structural racism contributes to racial inequities that limit and/or prevent equal access and opportunities
  • Understand how anti-racist leadership practicies are critical for the sustainability field

 

The workshop is designed for both current sustainability professionals and those interested in working in the sustainability field.
