White Fragility: Building White Racial Stamina with Robin DiAngelo
Seattle City Hall
Seattle, WA
Share this event:

A workshop focusing on the specific way that racism manifests through White Fragility. White fragility is defined as the inability for white people to tolerate racial stress, preventing them from engaging constructively across race. Using an anti-racist approach, the session will:

* acknowledge the historic and current power differentials between people based on the racial groups to which they belong;

* address the patterns of interaction that develop due to the dynamics of racial socialization and;

* provide the perspectives and skills for white people to create more racially just norms and practices.

Dr. Robin DiAngelo is an Associate Professor of Multicultural Education at Westfield State University in Massachusetts. Her scholarship is in Whiteness Studies. Her research is concerned with the challenges of an increasingly white teaching force and an increasingly diverse student population. She has twice been honored with the Student's Choice Award for Educator of the Year.  In addition to her academic work, Dr. DiAngelo has extensive experience as a workplace consultant in issues of race relations and racial justice. She has numerous publications and just released her second book, "What Does it Mean to be White?: Developing White Racial Literacy." Her previous book: "Is Everyone Really Equal: An Introduction to Social Justice Education" (co-written with Özlem Sensoy) received the Critics Choice Award by the American Educational Studies Association.

Due to limited capacity, the priority for these sessions are people working within the arts & cultural sector.

There are two date options for the workshop, which runs from 1pm to 5pm.

If you're interested in taking this training, but can't make these dates, or if the session you're interested in is full, please email Kathy.hsieh@seattle.gov so that we can let you know of other future opportunities to participate.
