Part 2 – Race Matters

This anti-racism training focuses on structural racism.

Stanton Adams Consulting encourages participants to apply the knowledge they gain to pursue racial equity in their workplace, school or community. Participants learn that they are institutional ‘‘gatekeepers’’ who can affect organizations either by acting to maintain or helping to undo racism.

You will learn

  • How to unpack systemic racism.
  • How to unravel white privilege.
  • How to take steps to be an ally.
  • How to develop an action plan that can be immediately applied.
