In “Addressing Institutional Racism in Our Everyday Lives,” Jennifer discusses the importance of understanding institutional racism and how we, as a community, can work together to build positive relationships in our places of work and in our communities.
During her presentation, Jennifer helps her audience to understand how race has and continues to be used to divide our communities. Her straightforward and nurturing approach helps her audiences to engage in rich and meaningful discussion.
Her participants will leave this session with a greater awareness of institutional racism, how to engage in “Courageous Conversations” around race, recognizing implicit/explicit bias and the impact it has in our workplace, and how we can build positive relationships in our places of work and in our communities. This presentation will include personal stories from community members who have experienced racism here in Lane County.
Speaker: Jennifer Scurlock from Churchill High School
