Developing Inclusive Practices

  • Multicultural Service Center 4610 Southeast Belmont Street Portland, OR, 97215 United States (map)
  1. Power Dynamics, Race and Culture
  2. Internalized Racism and The White Gaze
  3. Inclusive Practice – Pragmatic answers to Organizational Issues
  4. Effective outreach models, partnerships, other alternatives

Regarding each topic we will go down to very specific topics, like perceived microaggressions, tokenism, appropriation, and other manifestations of structural power dynamics that play out daily in our workplace with co-workers and when working with clients/service users. The first two parts outline the specific dynamics that occur in non-profit and other practices, and the last part addresses questions raised in the beginning about practice. Instead of traditional outreach and organizational models, the training discusses alternative ones like accessibility, and collaborative partnerships that are culturally appropriate.
