THE DEEP/DEC workshop series on Race, Power, and Partnership aims to provide a structure for environmental organizations that identify as white-led or white-dominated to learn how to:
- Build trust with Black and Brown community members and organizations &
- Create inclusive organizations that attract Black and Brown leaders and members, and to do both in a way that adds value for Black and Brown community members and organizations.
This workshop series is open to all, but is primarily focused on the work that white and white- passing people committed to dismantling systems of oppression in our organizations can do to ensure that they are carrying much of the burden of this work rather than Black and Brown partners and colleagues. In this, we invite Black and Brown organization leaders and presenters to participate in the process in a way that is intended to reduce the chance of further racialized harm and increase trust and collaboration.
