Do I have the Capacity to be Antiracist? Moving Beyond Values and Knowledge
Being antiracist extends beyond personal values and knowledge. One must have the perceived capacity (or ability) to act on those values and knowledge. If you are in a program or department that does not support antiracism, it will be that much harder for you to exercise your antiracist views. In this course, we will review the iterative steps involved in changing institutional culture so that antiracism is the norm and standard. In this way, the most historically excluded identities and perspectives are always seen, valued, and considered in program decisions and resource allocations.
This course is designed for any learner with an interest in actively being antiracist, regardless of your institutional role. There are no pre-requisites for this course so all students, trainees, residents, faculty, administrators, and staff are welcomed to enroll.
This course meets the GW faculty requirement for implicit bias training.
By the end of this course, participants should be able to:
- Explain why institutional antiracist aims must address historical and contemporary institutional injustices;
- Review the components of the Model for Antiracist Transformation
