Introduction to Structural Racism Fall Intensive 2020
September 30, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Presented by Community-Campus Partnerships for Health: Institutional and systemic racism are a direct result of laws, policies, and practices. Inequities have been systematically integrated into the fabric of our society across every sector – law, education, housing, health. As systems are built, they too can be dismantled. Community-Campus Partnerships for Health (CCPH) has emerged as a leader in exploring the role of partnerships in addressing structural racism. The intensive examines historic and contemporary manifestations of institutional and systemic inequities.
The format for the “Introduction to Structural Racism” Intensive is designed for participants to look through the lens of equity and have a mindful and heartfelt real-life experience. Our training can be adapted to multiple formats – virtual and in-person. The overall purpose remains the same— to provide participants with a historical understanding of structural inequalities, systemic racism, and skills needed to work in partnership to address these issues.
What happens at the end of a CCPH experience is also unique. We ensure participants leave with tools they can use to build a clear framework for a plan to operationalize skills learned. Having the skills needed to work in partnerships to address these issues results in a big increase in the success of their program activities. Participants also have access to the Participant Webpage where they can access the community forum, an online platform to connect, share work, and continue the conversation beyond the intensive.
