FORTIFY: The Racial Equity Series is a six-part series beginning September 15, running through October 20.
 

Fieldstone Leadership Network San DiegoRISE San Diego and The Nonprofit Institute at the University of San Diego have joined together to create FORTIFY: The Racial Equity Series. This collection of webinars aims to provide nonprofit leaders with a foundational understanding, tools and resources necessary to lead in the areas of race relations and equity while strengthening the leadership, well-being and sustainability of nonprofit leaders and organizations committed to the work of equity and social justice.

FORTIFY: The Racial Equity Series was curated in response to requests from nonprofit leaders for assistance in supporting their work in the areas of diversity, equity and inclusion and in recognition of the tremendous difficulty under which nonprofit professionals are working to sustain organizations, manage teams and serve clients in equitable and just ways.

FORTIFY: The Racial Equity Series is a six-week program which will feature one webinar each week – on Tuesdays from 12 to 1:15 pm. The program will begin on September 15, 2020 and run through October 20, 2020 and be hosted on Zoom. You may join all six or choose specific sessions in which to participate.

A certificate in Foundations of Racial Equity will be offered to participants who register and attend the six-part series, read supplemental material and complete a course survey.

This registration page is for the full six-week program (Total Cost $150), if you would like to register for sessions separately, please follow the links provided below each series offering (Total Cost $25 each session).

September 15, 2020 - Creating a Common Language for the Conversation

Facilitated by Dr. Zachary Green

This webinar helps us to forge a common language for our conversations on racial equity. Beginning with an exploration of what we mean by race and equity, the presentation shifts to consider definitions and different perspectives on concepts such as white fragility, privilege, systemic racism, and anti-racism. The aim of the session is to help listeners learn and feel better equipped to enter conversations on race.

September 29, 2020 - Beginning Where You are As Who You Are

Facilitated by Dr. Zachary Green

Shame about one’s ignorance on matters of race has been identified as one of the key factors that leads to an epidemic of silence as violence when it comes to movement for Black Lives. Another variable is the very real challenge is the social costs of confronting friends and family who profess racist ideas and may even engage in racist behaviors. This webinar helps us begin to forge a pathway towards greater voice on the lifelong journey of racial equity. Let’s begin where you are.

October 6, 2020 - Getting Ready for Racial Inquiry: Deeper Dimension of Racial Equity Dialogue

Facilitated by Dr. Zachary Green

What happens when we remain curious about racial equity? Far too often our conversations on race are little more than well-rehearsed chosen narratives that are seldom subject to much examination. An approach to dialogue known as Racial Inquiry invites us to ask questions of one another on race. It begins by acknowledging the socio-historical realities of systemic racism. Racial Inquiry thereby reduces defensive reactions and moves us closer to responsive discourse that engages our common humanity to ask, What now? What’s next?

October 13, 2020 - Learning the Adaptive Racial Conversation Hierarchy Approach

Facilitated by Dr. Rodric Smith

When it comes to conversations on race, we often face situations and circumstances that thwart our best intentions. According to the Adaptive Racial Conversation Hierarchy (ARCH) approach to racial equity dialogue, we hit a vicious triangle that limits our voice and locks us into familiar performative patterns that do little to advance the conversation. The ARCH Model helps us enter an adaptive cycle that engages our learning on race and propels to a virtuous triangle with potential to transform the conversation and our own behaviors related to racial equity.

October 20, 2020 - Living into Racial Equity: Intention and Action

Facilitated by Dr. Zachary Green

Now what? Racial equity is achieved when we begin an ongoing examination of our own beliefs and behaviors. It continues when we exercise authority in the places and spaces where we have the power and influence to transform norms and policies. This webinar helps us to take an unflinching look at where we can most leverage change, assess our readiness to do so, and create accountable intention for action on racial equity. If not you, who? If not now, when?
