11:00 am to 12:30 pm

If you want tools to understand and address the systemic nature of injustice, this is the workshop for you. The Interaction Institute invites participants to get beyond the tip of the iceberg or racist event, and dig deeper into the patterns, structures, and underlying beliefs that allow structural racism exist.

In this interactive workshop, IISC staff will work with participants to apply various systems thinking tools to uncover “leverage points” for advancing our pursuit of racial justice.

We will develop our capacity to:

• See more systemically
• Apply tools to identify leverage points for change
• Examine mindsets as impediments to/accelerants for change
