Strategies for Change

There's so much to do. Where and how do we begin? We're clear about our values, but how do we operationalize them? How do we move beyond indecision, overwhelm, and being stuck? More importantly, how do we work around rigid detractors and hostility?

 

Join artEquity founder + executive director, Carmen Morgan, and deputy director, Michael Robertson, in this two-part intensive. Enhanced and expanded from last year's successful webinar, Strategies for Change is back! This interactive virtual series will provide concrete practices, real-life organizational examples, and opportunities to practically apply relevant concepts. 

In this two-part intensive, participants will:

  • Learn how to make the case for this important work;

  • Conduct an organizational resource assessment; 

  • Explore potential accountability practices and tools that can support implementation of antiracist practices;

  • Discuss and learn from successful antiracist initiatives;

  • Become a part of an Organizational Action Team and test out new ideas with support;

  • Receive tools, templates, and resources including the Strategies for Change webinar to share with others in their organization.

Resources

Strategies for Change is a two-part series with a pre-training webinar. A link to the Strategies for Change webinar and resources will be emailed to participants two weeks prior to the training.

 

Facilitators

Carmen and Michael have supported organizational culture change for theaters, museums, production teams, associations, unions, dance companies, foundations, and universities across the US and Canada. 

LOGISTICS

The workshop will be conducted virtually with a combination of personal reflection, small group work, and large group conversations. 

PRE-REQUISITES AND MATERIALS​​

  • Strategies for Change Webinar:  Strategies For Change is a two-part series with a pre-training webinar. The Strategies for Change pre-recorded webinar is an important component to the series and it is required viewing prior to the first session of training. A viewing link will be made available two weeks prior to the training.

  • Resource Assessment: A key component of this intensive is the completion of an Organizational Resource Assessment. It will be used to inform Organizational Action Teams as well as support organizational priorities beyond the training. 

  • Antiracism Framework: While it is not required that participants complete any additional trainings prior to attending Strategies for Change, we do expect that participants have a foundational understanding of antiracism. If participants are new to antiracism work, we would highly recommend first attending artEquity’s Everyday Justice or engaging in other introductory learning opportunities to support.

    Recommended Reading: Several articles will be assigned in advance of the intensive to support community-building and provide important philosophical context. All articles will be shared two weeks prior to the training. 

 

ATTENDANCE 

We ask that participants attend all 8 hours (4 hours a day) of this training. This workshop is designed to build thematically: layering one concept before the next. Missing more than a few minutes of the session will make it challenging to the individual and their co-learners.

ACCESS

Computer-generated captions are available for all programming. ASL Interpretation is available if requested two weeks out from the training. For other access support, please let us know at the time of registration.

TECH SUPPORT

For day of technical support, please email meet@artEquity.org
