Join Donte Curtis of Catch Your Dream Consulting for an interactive workshop that invites attendees to explore the ways that white supremacy culture is harming us and the work that we do. During our time together, we will reflect on how the dominant culture shows up in us (White Folks and People of Color) and will be given tools and strategies to stop the cycle. This workshop will use the collective wisdom in the room to foster new ideas and think about what is possible when we all do our internal work.
After Donte’s session you’ll have the opportunity to discuss how his presentation applies specifically to volunteer engagement, and will hear from MAVA staff and members about new strategies for building racially inclusive and equitable volunteer programs.
