Image description: A trio of BIPOC dressed in black, peach, teal, and royal blue hold a large megaphone facing words in browns, grey, and white, "Black, Indigenous, People of Color Surviving Predominantly White Institutions." Under the trio of folks are words that read, "Navigating, surviving, and knowing when it's time to go." Dates: July 17th - August 9th. The artEquity logo in black and orange is in the top left corner of the image.
Registration is required for all sessions and open to BIPOC only. If you are registering for the first time or re-registering (see more in pink box below) for the Friday sessions, go to https://bit.ly/BIPOC-PWI-Fridays.
Registration for the Sunday Support Sessions will be sent via email to those who attended the Friday Forum Session preceding that Sunday's Support Session. An email with a registration link will be sent directly to the attendee list provided by Zoom.
Sessions will include artEquity alumni, staff, and program partners: Patricia Garza, Alexis Green, Cloteal Horne, Peter J. Kuo, Andi Meyer, Carmen Morgan, Dat Ngo, Mauricio Salgado, Lauren E. Turner, and others!
Please note that we are not recording the Friday Forum Sessions or Sunday Support Sessions so as to provide a safe space of confidentiality and trust. That said, we acknowledge that there is great need for this work and engagement and we are committed to a second round which we will announce.
ASL interpretation is available for all sessions.

Join us as we share strategies for interfacing with white leadership; what to do when sh*t goes down; how to navigate white women and their tears; how to cultivate BIPOC solidarity; and how to know when it’s time to go.
This weekly, four-part series is for Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) only and will take place over the digital airwaves via Zoom every Friday beginning July 17th and culminating on August 7th. Each Forum Session will run from 10:30a - 12:30p PT/1:30p - 3:30p ET.
In addition to the Friday Forum Sessions, there will be Sunday Support Sessions for BIPOC to, you guessed it, process being a BIPOC surviving PWIs. They will be every Sunday beginning July 19th and ending on August 9th. Each Support Session will run from 10:30a - 12:00p PT/1:30p - 3:00p ET.
The Sunday Support Sessions are intentionally designed to follow the Friday Forum Sessions in order to provide a social space to break isolation and as a group: Reflect, Process, Empower, and Rejuvenate (RPER).

If you registered before Friday, July 17th:
Apologies to the folks who encountered registration difficulties during our webinar on Friday, 7/17. We managed to find a solution so that folks could re-register and join but we know that there were folks who were unable to implement that work around.
Unfortunately our registration solution on 7/17 wiped out all registrations made before 7/17. If you registered 7/17 or after, you are good to go! You will have received links for the sessions you registered for. If you registered before, 7/17, please re-register using the link above. Thank you for your understanding!
Please contact our team at for all BIPOC/PWI support.
Thank you for your patience and community!
