The CEI Reframing Racism workshop series will be returning in Fall, 2017.  Due to the high demand for this workshop, we’ve opened registration for October sessions now!  Mark your calendars and sign up today!

 

Click here to learn more about this workshop opportunity.

Here is a small sampling of past participant feedback!

“I would highly recommend this workshop to others. In this crucial time of conflict in our country workshops, such as this one, are important for individuals, both POC and white people, to form a common ground of understanding on how the systems of racism affects everyone.”

“Be prepared – the CEI “Reframing Racism” Workshop will have you questioning the motives and intentions of your entire life. This work is high stakes, deeply personal, and a transformational experience!”

“Reframing Racism was an invaluable experience. It helped me to locate myself in my path to doing effective racial equity work, and helped me gain a better understanding of the experience I have been having, as a white person. I will continue to reference the cycle of empowerment to keep myself accountable to changing my unhelpful patterns and responses.”

We hope to see you in October!
