“Liberation Through Leading Cross-Racial Teams:” Internalized oppression is the means by which all of us hold on to, cosign, and re-enact our unresolved identity stresses. This interactive workshop examines this phenomenon with specific regard to workplace dynamics. Participants explore an approach that both models and deepens anti-racism practice: working in cross-racial teams. Together, we explore the common challenges and strategize how to work through them. Participants leave with the perspective, skills, and tools necessary for successful, cross-racial teamwork.
