Deepening Your Anti-Racist Lens: The Role of Intersectionality

October 4th and October 11th

Program generously sponsored by BC Housing

This first-ever workshop is designed for participants who have already completed the two-day Anti-Racism workshop offered by BCNPHA in 2021 and 2022. Jamie Joanou and Erica Nicole Griffin of Monday Morning Consultants will lead this two-part series to further develop and refine your anti-racism lens. The goal of the sessions is to provide participants with an understanding of intersectionality, to deepen their equity analysis, and connect with the theories and frameworks of scholars and activists leading this work. Intersectionality urges us to center the most marginalized as we work to recognize, analyze and ultimately dismantle white supremacy in the affordable housing sector. We will also cover concepts like whiteness and white feminism and explore how these ideologies have negatively shaped the non-profit sector. This workshop series emphasizes dialogue and connection, thus participants should be prepared to come to the workshops fully engaged, demonstrate vulnerability, and practice critical self reflection.
