Please note: Introduction to Conversations about Race & Belonging is an introductory, one session offering, which MHC will offer twice in the Fall 2021 semester. The content of the two sessions will be the same each time. In order to reach as many OPS educators as possible, participants may only register for and attend one of the sessions. We ask that you please only register for the date you prefer. Wait-lists for each introductory session will be opened as the offerings fill. Again, please do not register for both offering dates. Thank you!

Conversations About Race & Belonging provide participants the opportunity to:

  • develop a shared language and understanding of race and systemic racism;
  • move into greater racial self-awareness and the decentering of whiteness through storytelling and listening; and
  • practice and gain confidence in engaging and initiating relational, “calling in” conversations about race and belonging.

Participants develop a shared language about race and racism that promotes their own continued learning and empowers them to engage in conversations with others. Participants come away with: a foundational understanding of what systemic racism is, practice in recognizing its component parts, and a grounding in anti-racism. This introductory session also offers educators skills and practice for initiating and engaging in meaningful dialogue about race and racism within one’s own communities, and offers opportunities to call people into relationship rather than call them out on racial mis-steps.
