YNPN Triangle NC is pleased to partner with the North Carolina Center for Nonprofits to offer the webinar, White Supremacy Culture: Treachery and Transformation, on April 10 from 1-2:30 p.m.
Tema Okun, racial justice educator, facilitator and author will help us ground ourselves in a shared understanding of what white supremacy culture is and how it manifests in our organizations so we are better positioned to challenge it. We'll examine how we are navigating white supremacy culture personally, in our nonprofits, and in our communities, and define our stake in dismantling it as we envision a transformative way of being and doing in the world.
This webinar is part of the Center's Walking the Talk: Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion in North Carolina Nonprofits initiative.
