So You're White and Want To Be a Leader. Are You Ready?

So You're White and Want To Be a Leader. Are You Ready?

Join Paul Johnson For So You're White and Want To Be a Leader. Are You Ready?

White folks are used to being in leadership positions. We feel entitled to power; to gain it, control it and protect it. It’s a mindset we’ve inherited being socialized in a white supremacist nation. But we’ve seen so many examples of white folks getting into positions of power, then go on to perpetuate white supremacy and fail to develop an anti-racist organization because they never took the time to examine their whiteness.

This workshop is for white-identifying aspiring leaders to investigate their racial identity and power, and to start thinking about anti-racist leadership now. We will briefly cover common pitfalls for white leaders like:

-White fragility

-Centering yourself

-Colonization

-Power hoarding

You will develop your own anti-racist leadership vision statement, examine white supremacy and learn the importance of organization culture.
