Course Description

Race has been called “the great American obsession” and has shaped the lives of people in our society for hundreds of years. Even today, race strongly influences life expectancy, quality of healthcare, income, wealth, job opportunities, incarceration rates, quality of education, and much more. Race also changes how we interact with one another, and the things we say—and don’t say—about this taboo topic. The Virtual, Two-Day Winter Institute on Race offers ways to positively change racial dynamics in the places where we live and work.

You are invited to virtual a educational setting (we will use the Zoom platform) in which participants explore race and build a sense of community across racial differences. The Institute will be interactive and highly participatory. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss the racial tensions that arose in the United States this past spring and summer because of police brutality and the failure of the society to address long-standing structural racism and racial inequities.

In the Virtual, Two-Day Winter Institute on Race you will learn:

  • The profound impact of early messages about race.
  • How racial privilege affects individual and group interactions.
  • Why power relationships change cross-race relationships.
  • How the history of race shapes current attitudes and behaviors.
  • How racial ideology influences individual and institutional behavior.
  • The effects of internalized racial superiority and oppression.
  • Action planning and strategies to address race and racism.

People find the Institute on Race not only informative but often life-changing. Insights from the Institute open individuals to new ways of seeing the world and building deep and lasting relationships. Join us for this unique learning opportunity.
