About the course

The course consists of 4 virtual, 1-hour sessions that can be viewed on a schedule or at the employees' own pace, to learn about how to become an anti-racist leader and agent of social change in your organization.

In addition to the session recordings, each participant will receive supplemental materials via our learning path, such as readings, videos, surveys, and reflection questions to integrate the course content into their work and professional relationships. Teams will have access to these materials for 1 year. 

This is an introductory course designed to train leaders and individuals on systemic racism and how it is maintained, the meaning and importance of anti-racism, as well as organizational strategies for creating a more inclusive workplace. Read the full course description
