GROUP TRAINING
FAQs 

Thank you for being a part of or scheduling a group from your organization to join one of our two-day Everyday Justice trainings. These trainings are an exciting opportunity to become a part of a growing community dedicated to antiracism.

 

Below you'll find frequently asked questions that will help to provide your group with a fuller training experience. 

Who will be in the Training ?

 

These trainings are open to anyone to register and you will find yourself in community with individuals and groups of individuals from a variety of organizations, many from the arts and culture sector but some who are not. While you may be attending as part of an organization and even find yourself in small-group discussion with another member of your organization, our curriculum is scaffolded to support your participation as an individual participant.

 

Where will the training be held?

This training is virtual. As such, we request that each participant login on their own device in a space that is not shared with another participant or co-worker.

 

As you know, these conversations are personal and often require a significant amount

of emotional reserves. Because of this, we ask that each participant find a location that is conducive to having the most thoughtful experiences.

 

We recognize that working patterns have shifted over the last few years, and some of our participants are working remotely or managing a unique set of challenges and a

variety of individual needs. That being said, we ask that every participant join the session on an

independent device, in a quiet, and well-lit environment free of distraction. We invite you

to best prepare your space in advance to support your personal physical needs.

 

How do I login to Zoom?

We will be using Zoom as a virtual meeting platform. We encourage everyone to (re)familiarize themselves with the platform and its setting options in advance including how to silence your microphone, how to rename yourself, and how to access breakout rooms. We highly encourage the use of a desktop computer rather than a mobile device whenever possible. We also recommend making any Zoom software updates in advance of the training.


How much do I need to participate?

For optimal virtual participation we encourage participants to remain present both on

audio and video feeds. However, we understand that participants will need to engage in

ways that are most comfortable for them and that there are varying access needs and

that might prevent video and audio participation. We encourage participants to share

their access needs with the facilitators prior to and/or during the training as they feel

comfortable.

 

Additionally, please silence your audio during the training in order to reduce background

noise.

 

What resources or materials will I need before the training?

 

We will send electronic versions of our Resource Packet and other pertinent

documents. We strongly encourage you to print hard copies of our resource packet,

although it is not required.

 

If you are unable to print, we suggest using a PDF reader such as Adobe Acrobat or

DocHub (the default PDF editor attached to Google) to interact with the resource packet

(i.e. take notes, answer reflection prompts, etc). The pdf resource packet will be

writable.

 

The materials contained in the resource packet are copyrighted and have been

developed by artEquity staff and belong to the artEquity training program. Some

materials have been adapted from other sources and are credited as such. We invite

you to share concepts, ideas, and learnings from this training and to also respect the

intellectual property of the artEquity training program.

 

What is in my Everyday Justice electronic Resource Packet?

The following is a list of materials that will be needed to support the training process:

 

  • An independent device (we strongly recommend participants do not share devices when joining the session)

  • Zoom application downloaded to your device (if the participant does not have computer access, they will need access to a cell phone to dial-in)

    • We also recommend verifying that you have the most recent Zoom updates installed on your device

  • Strong Wi-fi Connection

  • Resource Packet (provided via PDF by artEquity)

    • We recommend printing a hard copy or

    • Using a PDF Reader such as Adobe Acrobat or DocHub

  • Anything you need to be comfortable (water, snacks, blanket, etc).


 

If I can't make my group training, how do I register for another time to attend?

As a registrant from an organization or group, we ask that you reach out to the person that arranged your registration to reschedule. The purchasing entity or person reserves the right to reschedule or reassign the registration per our exchange and refund policy. If you find that you need to reschedule at the last minute, we welcome a message so we know that you will not be joining us and we can also support the exchange process with your group contact.
