November 5, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - November 8, 2017 @ 2:00 pm
Sequoia Retreat Center, 11445 Alba Rd
Ben Lomand, CA 95005 United States

Transformational Opportunity for Compact Members APPLICATION: Due March 21, 2017 Institute Description: Colleges and universities must play a leadership role in promoting racial and social justice.  Despite well-meaning intentions, both the systems we work in as well as our own fears and resulting biases limit our capacity to work, communicate and build relationships in ways that uphold equity and inclusion.  For most, the impacts on us and others are as invisible as our biases: from whom we choose to collaborate with to how we interact with our colleagues and students.  Early and persistent experiences of institutional oppression left their residue on us. The intention of this institute is to come together in community to understand the impacts of and heal from the effects of institutional and internalized oppressions in order to create a more just and connected present and future.  We will do this by deepening our understanding of who we are, where we come from and why equity and justice…
