Today I participated in a virtual Whiteness at Work summer series, mod 1 of 4. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
TL;DR —> I have work to do.
I’m crazy inspired & still analyzing what I heard … focusing on Racial Equity over equality. How anti-blackness is used to explain all the things that cause Black People’s suffering & death. How white people are socialized that comfort is a value. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Per direction, I’m gonna slow down & continue to listen and then take the right action.
This workshop is for larger organizations so I was extremely fortunate to attend as the owner of a micro-sized biz with one employee (me).
Listen, if your company is looking to evolve and do more than make a statement in a blog post, do NOT wait. Hire Desiree & The Adaway Group!
Desiree opened our session referencing who’s land she was on (indigenous people by tribal affiliation) and closed with ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“Let’s go get free; we only get free together” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
which is now written on the front page of my current journal to keep me on point. ⠀⠀
my fellow white people, we have so much work to do to become Accomplices in everyone’s freedom so join me for all 4 modules. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Head over to The Adaway Group and sign up.
Thank you Desiree & Team!
