Program Director, NCCJ St. Louis

The need has never been greater for social workers and other helping professionals to be aware of structural oppression and work within their systems and organizations to promote equity.  Join us for a 2-day experience to enhance your capacity to be an agent of positive change.

We will learn and practice skills for reflecting on the dynamics of structural oppression, considering how this plays out across multiple identities, including race, class, gender identity, and sexual orientation.  Participants will practice engaging with each other in open, respectful dialogue about their personal and professional experiences.

Our second day will focus on applying a critical lens toward policies and interpersonal practices that contribute to structural oppression. Participants will practice skills and formulate plans to interrupt these dynamics when they encounter them in the workplace or the broader community.

Class size is limited to 30.
