This dynamic workshop will lead participants through a collaborative process of naming organizational patterns of white supremacy, anti-Blackness, and xenophobia and enabling cultures of wellness, belonging and organizational growth and transformation. This training will provide leaders with a deeper dive into the ways in which inequitable service provision shows up in programs, negatively impacts all staff, and interrupts safety and security for survivors of color and other marginalized communities. Participants will also be provided with culturally relevant approaches and strategies that support racial equity in hiring, policies, programs, and partnerships.
Breathing Space: Supporting Healthy Advocacy
After 20 years in the domestic violence movement, Zoe flowers knows first-hand about the toll our work can have on our bodies, minds and spirits (Especially those of us with histories of trauma). And the current climate has exacerbated the stress many of us have overlooked for years. Advocates, and program directors alike are struggling to stay connected while also keeping programs, staff, and their families healthy. This workshop will utilize intentional breathing, visualization, and other modalities to assist senior executives, mid-level managers, and program staff with techniques to reduce stress and promote a renewed sense of creativity and resilience. *Trauma informed resources for creating personal self-care plans will be provided at the end of the session.
