You can become an anti-racist leader
This Wednesday, Aug. 26, join us for the next session of UCOP’s new series on understanding racism at work, Continuing the Conversation on Race. In this week’s session, you’ll discover the current leadership skills necessary to become an anti-racist leader.
This course will teach participants how to apply Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) concepts to a current leadership model — and be challenged to shift their personal leadership practice.
Next session: Open forum — your anti-racism questions answered
Join us as we address questions and engage in dialogue around anti-racism. Participants will converse as a larger group and in small breakout sessions. Register here for the discussion.
About the Continuing the Conversation on Race series
The Continuing the Conversation on Race series focuses on understanding racism at work, the history and impact of systemic racism and how to become an anti-racist leader. Courses are led by author, educator and executive director of People, Leadership and Development with the Alameda County Office of Education, Dr. Rachelle Rogers-Ard.
Videos from previous classes (not including participant questions) will be available soon in the UC Learning Center. UCOP employees are also encouraged to take advantage of the following anti-racism resources:
- Dr. Rogers-Ard has compiled an Anti-Blackness resource list for UCOP, which includes books, videos and articles to further your learning.
- The LinkedIn Learning Belonging and Inclusion collection compiled by UCOP Learning and Development features several resources for exploring workplace race, belonging and inclusion, including the course Confronting Racism by “White Fragility” author Robin D’Angelo.
- The Guide for Holding Conversations with Your Teams supports facilitators in holding team conversations on race.
